The opera deals with the maniacal hunt of the sperm whale Moby Dick by the obsessed Captain Ahab, as well as the relationships of the crew, who establish a symbolic brotherhood.

It covers a wide range of genres and influences, from minimalism to Mozart, Wagner, American opera-musicals (such as Gershwin's "Porgy & Bess" and Benstein's "West Side Story") and the rock-opera "Tommy".
