The Dawn Makers

Janos Gereben on January 29, 2009
Allan Shearer’s new opera The Dawn Makers is based on the ancient Greek myth of Eos, goddess of the dawn and her human lover, Tithonys, who is made immortal but not eternally youthful. In this comic updating, the couple are joined by a pool man who knows enough to decline the offer of immortality, and two Valley girls who double as the horses of the Goddess’ chariot. Composers, Inc.’s fully staged production (in honor of their 25th anniversary) boasts a distinguished cast, including Christine Brandes, John Duykers, and Eugene Brancoveanu.
