Le Purgatoire by Gerard Pape is a work of genius. It reinvents opera by expanding the vocabulary of sprechtsinge and free of the tension-release mind control of neoclassical convention. This electro-acoustic sound world is a bridge to Dante for us, a worm-hole from pre-raphael to modern. Dante, the first psychiatrist, pathos and bathos.
