Come and hear Charles Causley’s libretto with an original score by Stephen McNeff and the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra ensemble – Kokoro.
The opera tell the story of the prophet Elisha and the raising of the boy from the dead after he has been struck down in the field by the heat of the sun. The source may be biblical but Charles Causley transposed it to the West Country, and blends the ritual of the harvest and the myths of the corn spirits.
