Last Days of the Buddha: Modern Opera

The Triumph of Life: The Last Days of the Buddha, an opera by composed by Timothy Lissimore, directed by Maitreyabandhu, performed at the London Buddhist Centre, UK. This is a brilliant musical score, a great piece of modern performance that should be known throughout the opera world. What amazes me is how much energy and emotion is expressed within what is normally considered to be a very dry subject, the death of the Buddha. I don’t have much information on the composition, direction or staging of this event, but I’d like to know more. If anyone has information, please comment below.
