Quick Overview

Iain Hamilton is emerging as one of the most important operatic composers of our time. " The Royal Hunt Of The Sun," his first opera, is a stunning and powerful drama of the Spanish conquest of Peru. The score is filled with vivid sound-painting, spectacular set-pieces and touching lyrical moments, all handled with a brilliant sense of timing. The opera's premiere performance in 1977 by the English National Opera was so successful that the work is being revived for the 1978-79 season - a rare honor for a contemporary opera.
