Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Aquarius is an opera for eight sopranos, eight baritones, and orchestra by Karel Goeyvaerts It was begun in 1983 and completed in April 1992, to a libretto by the composer in eight languages, incorporating lines from the Revelation of St. John. Aquarius in its final form is an opera, but its composition involved a number of preliminary pieces for various forces, so that Goeyvaerts preferred to speak of the "Aquarius project." Goeyvaerts's inspiration came from principally four sources: Marilyn Ferguson's book The Aquarian Conspiracy (which he was given in 1983 by his friend Boudewijn Buckinx), the astrological theory of epochs, the Revelation of St. John, and the Beatos Apocalypse manuscripts by the 8th-century exegete Beatus of Li bana (Pols 1994, 152-57; Verstraete 1994, 185-86).show more
