Seven Angels

Glyn Maxwell

PaperBack (17 Jun 2011)

Seven angels have fallen through space and time for so long, they have forgotten why. Coming to rest on a desert landscape, they imagine the creation of a legendary garden that once flourished there and its destruction from greed and neglect. Inspired by Paradise Lost, Seven Angels interprets the themes of John Milton’s masterpiece for a modern audience facing up to the urgent challenges of a changing climate and ever-depleting resources.

This is the long-awaited first opera from Luke Bedford featuring the libretto of award-winning poet Glyn Maxwell.
