Plague and the Moonflower
“Plague and the Moonflower” is a unique and apocalyptic musical spectacle and ecological love story for the millennium. Richard Harvey audaciously interweaves narration, electronic keyboards, Andean folk instruments, virtuoso solos, choruses of children and adults, and full orchestra, in an extraordinary and richly textured collage, while Ralph Steadman’s powerful libretto addresses themes of struggle, of despair, and of hope. As man's red-eyed demon poisons earth, sea and sky, an ethereal beauty unfolds its delicate petals… This release (1999) is available on Altus Records.¶
