May 10, 1997
Theater der Stadt Heidelberg
"Marriages" is the 2nd part of the trilogy of operas based on the "Canopus in Argos" series of novels by Doris Lessing. The work is set in the indeterminate lands of the Zones, Strange realms which encircle the Earth. Zone Three, a peaceful, contented, matriarchal paradise, is ruled by the gentle Queen Al-Ith; the neighbouring Zone four is land given to war and chaos, controlled by brutal warrior-king, Ben-Ata. Their marriage, a melding of the extreme male and female principles, threatens to destabilise the entire galactic empire.
