Сверлийцы. Эпизод II: Борис Филановский
The opera tells about the birth, initiation and adventures of a Drillalian Prince. According to the laws of Drillalia, this all occurs simultaneously in the future, the present and the past – time frames and events intertwine whimsically in the young man’s maturingconsciousness.
We are on the second deck of a gondola barge, where the true tale of the Last Drillaliet begins amid sacred rituals. Oblivious to his past, having lost contact with Drillalia, he suddenly awakens and experiences total recall while having breakfast in his Moscow kitchen. As a result, he prepares to return to his Drillalian homeland.
