Winifried Dulisch reviews Roger Doyle‘s electronic opera HERESY for AUDIO Magazine.
In no case was this opera written for traditional opera singers! Roger Doyle has composed his “electronic opera” about the philosopher and free thinker, Giordano Bruno, who was burned at the stake in 1600. The Irish electronic composer even wrote a supporting role for Caitríona O’Leary, who is well known on the early music scene as well as being a folk singer. The backing track was recorded solely with electronic instruments. Instead of merely carrying the listener into meditative realms, Heresy consistently honors the title and dramatic themes of the opera.
