Babylon Opera-Circus is a story of birth and death of metaphoric "tower". It is based on Biblical legend about conflict between man and God, extrapolated on urban tragedy of the modern city.
The mix of languages and people is transmitted by the mix of contrasting musical styles: avant-garde and pseudo-baroque, trip-hop and rock, shamanic folk and electronic techno, allusions to Italian opera and French chanson.
The opera’s libretto is based on Biblical texts (The Book of Genesis, Apocalypse) with allusions to Old Greek Mythology (the image of Cassandra) and present-day literary texts (Viktor Pelevin’s «Generation P»). The vocal part uses the texts of folk songs, Latin prayers, words and verbal constructions from 19 different languages (including Mongolian and Chinese).
