WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Two of Luigi Dallapiccola's most affecting works stand as monumental moral testaments. Night Flight was written in response to the rise of fascism, and is based on the work of French author Antoine de Saint-Exupery (of Little Prince Fame). The Prisoner, Dallapiccola's one-act opera of 1948, explores the ideas of torture and hope in a world without justice.
