Program Note

Loosely based on Ovid's mythical drama Metamorphoses with a libretto by Miriam Seidel, Judgment of Midas details the epic musical battle that occurs between the gods Pan and Apollo. With King Midas as the witness, Pan, maker of "street music" and Apollo, maker of the god's music, compete for supremacy as the foremost divine musician. Mixing together an assortment of world, ethnic, popular and folk music, Ince uses his versatile compositional talents to depict the mythical musical duel of the gods. The opera celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Archaeological Exploration of Sardis.
