The music, acting, singing and choreography are all elements which are creating the atmosphere of the Alzheimer’s patient, and the people around him, his wife, the caregiver, her daughter and, of course, the doctor.


The idea of the composer Elena Langer and the librettist Glyn Maxwell is that the Patient is an actor and has only spoken lines while the other characters are singing. What a strange universe to encounter for the patient? He speaks while the others are singing.
