Further developmental support was given by: Blue Mountain Center (USA), Corporation of Yaddo (USA), Fulbright Commission (UK/USA), Genesis Foundation (UK), Philip Glass (USA), Radcliffe Institute of Harvard University (USA), Adam Hochschild (USA), Institute for Advanced Study (USA), MacDowell Colony (USA), Music Sales Group (UK), National Endowment for the Arts (USA), PRS for Music Foundation (UK), Radcliffe Institute (UK), Trinity College, Cambridge (UK), Wingate Foundation (UK) Duration: c 75 minutes The Characters of the Opera MARLOW (tenor): (MARL.)

a captain of a ship moored in the Thames Estuary, and witness to Marlow’s tale

THE COMPANY SECRETARY (tenor): (CO.SEC.)

THE DOCTOR (baritone): (DOC.)

also based at the Company’s headquarters

THE ACCOUNTANT (tenor): (ACCNT.)

the Company’s chief accountant, based at an outer trading station

THE MANAGER (tenor): (MNGR)

a Company manager, in charge of Marlow’s expedition

THE BOILERMAKER (baritone): (B/MKR)

The action takes place concurrently on a ship, moored in the Thames Estuary, and, many years earlier, during Marlow’s expedition to Central Africa. Casting: It is possible to double-cast several of the characters, allowing the opera to be performed with as few as eight singers. A combination of both single- and double-casting is also possible. Character doublings are: The Company Secretary and The Manager (tenor); The Doctor and The Boilermaker (baritone); The Accountant and The Helmsman (tenor); The River Woman and The Fiancée (soprano). When forming the chorus, only one of each pair of characters is printed in the score for clarity. Each chorus part can be doubled, in the pairings listed above, if there is one singer to each character (i.e. no double-casting).
