Fantasy, adventure, magic, monsters, fairies, witches, kings and queens are all part of the world created by Caldecott Medal winning Beni Montresor and acclaimed composer Philip Glass in this children's opera-ballet that was originally created for the world's most famous opera house, Teatro alla Scala in Milan, Italy. The piece was based on Montresor's children's book, The Witches of Venice.
Glass's most famous works are often large scale and very serious in nature. His works for the stage, screen and opera house such as Einstein on the Beach, Symphony No. 6 "Plutonian Ode" and his famous Koyaanisqatsi all fit that description.

From the beginning of my work on The Voyage, I had decided that the opera would be a celebration of the spirit of discovery. Of course, the occasion for the commission from the Metropolitan Opera was the 500th anniversary of the arrival of Columbus in the New World. However, my intention was to shift the focus from the man himself to the imagination and dream that animated him.

How do you write music for a story that encompasses the 20th Century…? A story that also combines elements of caprice and destiny. And at its center a story that asks whether war is inevitable, unavoidable, part of human nature. This is my third collaboration with Philip Glass, and I cannot think of who else could have written the music. I once told Philip that he creates a feeling of existential dread better than anyone else I know of. And this is a movie filled with existential dread. I like to think of it as music for the apocalypse, where the apocoalypse is not so much the end of the world but just more of what we've seen before, more of the same.

As with so many of life's most significant encounters, I met Philip Glass purely by accident in 1995 on a plane flying out of Lincoln Nebraska after a grueling job interview at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln School of Music. That plane trip marked the beginning of an artistic collaboration the fruit of which is represented on this recording. Glass introduced me to a transcription of Satyagraha made by his music director Michael Riesman and thus began my fascination with the art of transcribing the theatre music of Philip Glass. It has been my privilege to work personally with Glass on repertoire ideas as well as musical ideas throughout the entire transcription process. In all I have transcribed eleven movements from various theatre works. The first three were published by Chester Music as the Trilogy Sonata, and all eleven make their recording debut on this CD.

Released in 1996, Philip Glass's score performed by the English Chamber Orchestra captures the moody desolation of nineteenth century London and the madness and desolation that is at the center of Conrad's novel.

When making a film, I play music constantly during "dailies" — the nightly screenings of the previous day's shooting. I test all kinds of music against the image, searching for the elusive "sound" of the picture.
In the case of The Truman Show, since it is the story of a live television program, I was also determining the music that the show's creator, Christof, would have chosen.
