  • El/Aficionado (1987–1992) opera for seven solo voices, prerecorded orchestra and electronics


This is the fourth opera in Ashley’s Now Eleanor’s Idea tetralogy: Junior, Junior’s story. A group of scenes from the life of an Agent. The scenes are a kind of debriefing to a jury of Interrogators, in which the Interrogators challenge the Agent in various forms of musical dialogue. The mood of the opera owes much to our fascination with espionage and with the character of those people who lead double lives.
