" A soldier they called Tom"
Paul Gordon Manners
The idea of telling the true and very emotional story of an English soldier who fought during the Second World War in Italy, to be precise in Emilia Romagna where I live right now, has been buzzing around in my head for quite a few years. I finally decided to narrate it using music, but after a long and painstaking research for photographs and documents regarding the course of the events, I tried integrating them all so as to create a multimedia opera that makes use of narrative, animation images and obviously music. The logical consequence is that it has become a theatrical and musical representation... that I'm really looking forward to performing !
