MAXIMUS, a one-act chamber opera


26 Apr 2014 - 17:00

“Maximus” is a one-act chamber opera that takes place in 2021 in a fictional metropolis much like Los Angeles. Maximus, the opera’s stubborn, goofy, and intelligent protagonist, receives a parking ticket in error generated by “Universal Parking Corporation”: a private company hired to handle the city’s ticketing needs. Instead of paying the bogus fine, Maximus decides to contest the ticket. He loses everything in his quest for justice: his job, his house, his wife; and in the end his freedom.
