MY LYRE THEME IN RUFUS WAINWRIGHT'S SECOND OPERA "HADRIAN"!


I was delighted to have had the unique honour, of having my lyre theme, "Hymn to Zeus", arranged by the Grammy award winning composer and singer/songwriter, Rufus Wainwright, in two scenes of his second opera, "Hadrian"! 

My theme can be heard here for the second time, in Act III Scene VIII - when Hadrian is allowed to travel back in time, to finally learn the terrible truth about the death of his lover, Antinous - murdered by Hadrian's general and personal friend, Turbo; who then threw his body into the Nile...

This excerpt of my lyre theme, as heard here in Act III, Scene VIII, was from a CBC Radio broadcast of the world premiere of the opera at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts, in Toronto on 13th October 2018.
