Giver of Light
Musical score and libretto by Adam Roberts and electronic score by Anil Çamci Stage direction by Andrew Eggert. Save the date for Giver of Light, a world premiere opera from 2013, inspired by the real life events of the 13th-century Sufi mystic poet
Rumi’s life was forever changed after an encounter with the wandering mystic, the Shams of Tabriz. Shams disappeared, and
Rumi spiraled into a deep sorrow, giving birth to much of the poetry we know today. Roberts’ present-day, American Midwest
reimagination of the story breaks down and explores our various assumptions about what love is, who it can be between, and
asks of us how intimately is love linked to sexuality.
