James Joyce’s ‘Ulysses‘ is being turned into Opus, by American composer Roger Rudenstein, who had presented this piece to a US audience, making a name for himself, and gaining recognition from the New York Times, and gaining over 100,000 plays on Soundcloud.
Roger is now planning to greet European audiences with this incarnation of James Joyce’s ‘Ulysses‘. Translating a 732 page literary epic into a two and a half hour opera, Roger has composed the score to fit around leitmotifs, which represent characters speech and emotion, and had used James’s actual words instead of his actual interpretation.
He has gained help from Boston based singers and musicians, to help him bring his Opera to European stages, which will be a guaranteed favourite for fans of composers such as Schubert, Stravinsky, Beethoven and Richard Strauss.
