    A shipwreck, one last inhabitable island, love, death, and an immaculate conception are just some of the ingredients the Nature Theater of Oklahoma has used to brew its spectacle. For its new production, the performance group set up by Kelly Copper and Pavol Liska, which readily embraces high-spirited large-scale projects, has turned to the opera format. Traditional motifs are exaggerated and distorted to the point of recognition. As the exuberant plot unfolds, self­reflective and anti-colonial moments establish references to the present. The shipwrecked becomes a prisoner. ‘Are you jealous / Of a slave? / A silly thing / For a king’. Tirelessly and with tremendous focus, the Nature Theater extracts a contemporary seriousness from the classical genre. And an unrestrained happiness. Basely loosed around The Flying Dutchman by Richard Wagner, Burt Turrido. An Opera borrows much from country and western music. Great fun guaranteed!
