MIRACLE FLIGHT 571 - A CHAMBER OPERA IN TWO ACTS BY LLOYD BURRITT
After adapting the libretto from Nando Parrado’s book, which has become a legend for the people of South America, Burritt chose Nando, with his best friend Roberto, his mother Eugenia and his sister Susy as principals for the opera. Act One follows the horrific events that occur in the plane’s remaining piece of fuselage. Act Two depicts the death-defying trials of Nando's and Roberto’s long trek through the Andes to home. The music is rich and full of harmony, dissonance and rhythmic drive capturing Nando’s and Roberto’s determination to survive the unforgiving harshness of their surroundings.
