Ciani crafted the music in 1980 for Gian Carlo Menotti’s 1968 opera of the same name, which was updated and performed as a play across New York high schools in the eighties.
“I was honoured to have been selected to create a new electronic score for Gian Carlo Menotti’s opera for children,” Ciani told Finders Keepers.
“The original production had been in 1968 and I felt that the electronic music component could be more playful and less abrasive than the original production.”
Help, Help, The Globolinks! is out 10th November on Finders Keepers.
