Trapped in transit… waiting for a train that will seemingly never arrive. Seven enigmatic travelers share their fantasies, dreams and lies that people only share with strangers. Each carefully guards their secrets and possessions until truths are unexpectedly and wrenchingly revealed.
Surreal, entertaining, and emotionally charged, Postcard from Morocco is richly melodic, featuring a brilliant variety of musical flavors borrowing from ragtime and popular music along with a deft parody of Wagner’s Flying Dutchman.
“Dominick Argento’s Postcard from Morocco casts a spell of unusual power for those willing to enjoy its decidedly different concepts…. a remarkable work.” – The Washington Post
“Postcard From Morocco is rich with ideas … A strange and often beautiful evening of theater!” —The New York Times
