An opera named
THE THREE OF US
This opera is pure fiction. Imagine Beethoven, Chopin and Mozart in Paradise, there, for decades, they have little choice but to listen to the music of angels... They ask themselves a lot of questions, on earth do we know their music ? How is the music currently ? Are there composers like them ?... In short, full of questions that go through their heads.
They will ask God for permission to come down again to find out what is going on, and God will accept giving them each a mission. Each Act gives the listener the choice to let his imagination go, and to make his own story.
1 - HEAVEN
Imagine for a moment that Beethoven, Mozart and Chopin are in Paradise. They ask themselves a lot of questions, how is music among the living ? Do they know their works ? Have they written for nothing ? Or, are their music in posterity ?
2 - THE REQUEST
After much discussion about it that bothered them, they decide to go find God, to ask permission to go back down to earth. Explain to them their desires to know... But what is the point of giving explanations, since God knows everything !
3 - THE PERMISSION
They want to know, too curious, and God finally accepts by giving them a mission to each.
4 - FIRST STEP ON EARTH
That's it !... They go down again, they finally see the earth, they are so happy that they start traveling everywhere.
5 - THE WONDER
The wonder is intense, they do not believe their eyes, very surprised too. But is it on this earth that we live ? They do not recognize anything...
6 - THE MISSION
Knowing that they have come back here for only one week, it is time to separate so that everyone can fulfill the mission God has given them. Beethoven will have to summarize what he will have felt like music on earth. The instruments he has seen, finding himself in the midst of a delirious crowd attending a rock concert... Chopin must report what he has seen, heard, and explain the electrified sounds. Mozart, when he must refrain from going to see women, drink and have fun. He will have to see most of his debauchery and do his Mea Culpa upon his return.
7 - CHOPIN IN TOWN
Chopin walks around, he visits, wonders what these huge houses are, « But how much do they live in ? »
8 - THE VIBRATIONS OF BEETHOVEN
Beethoven is sad, having become deaf, he can not hear what the living are doing at the moment as music. But he feels the vibrations, sometimes astonished, sometimes disappointed, he finds the current vibrations very strange...
9 - THE MADNESS OF MOZART
Mozart is unconscious, he is young, a little crazy, he thinks only to have fun. Being surrounded by women, drinking good wine, in short, constantly partying. By force, the disease has finally prevailed, and it is his own life that he sees again.
10 - THE CALL OF THE ANGELS
Beethoven, Mozart and Chopin are the only ones to hear the call of the angels who warn them that they have only two days left before going back to Heaven.
11 - TOMORROW WE GO BACK
Tomorrow, our three great composers will have to return to Paradise. No question of staying longer among the living.
12 - BACK TO HEAVEN
It's the day! ... Their stay on earth is over, our three musicians meet at the rendezvous point. Now they are going back to Heaven. They will each have their story to tell God (Who already knows everything!).
