Opera in two acts with libretto by Kate Gale. Currently in development.
Che is an opera in two acts based on the life and death of legendary Argentinian revolutionary Ernesto “Che” Guevara. It is set up as a non-linear narrative structure passion play in ten discreet scenes that tell the story of his rise and fall, his triumphs and his failures, and his ultimate demise and canonization as a pop culture icon of the Left. But who is Che Guevara? Is he the New Man for a New Century or is he another monster, lost in himself and his idealism until all that’s left behind is suffering?
The artistic team is looking for partners to commission completion of the opera and workshop/premiere productions. Download our Opera One Sheet for more details.
