While Gluck took audiences into the bowels of the underworld in Orphée et Eurydice, the contemporary opera Flight goes for an even more infernal location: an airport. Taking place entirely in a modern-day terminal, the characters of this comedy are an interesting cross-section of "complicated" people all meeting in transit, emotionally as well as geographically. Although travel has changed somewhat since Flight premiered in 1998, Dove's witty, colorful score and de Angelis' humorous, yet poignant libretto continue to provide a memorable journey from start to finish. Johnathon Pape, director of Opera Studies at Boston Conservatory, directs this uplighting production performed in English with projected supertitles.
