Following the Drillalian Civil War, we see the Prince amid the charred ruins of civilization. He has assumed the rank of the Lord of Drillalia. We hear his melancholy song.

The secret of the Last Drillaliet is revealed. We witness the process of his identification with the Prince, encounter the great Rabbi Zalman Shneur of Lyady, and hear readings from his sacred writings.

***

The opera depicts 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 maturing consciousness.

The performance is accompanied by English-language supertitles.
