Composer Juhani Nuorvala and librettist Juha Siltanen’s opera, FLASH FLASH, is a portrait of the American artist Andy Warhol – a lonely man surrounded by the masses. It is an incandescent requiem that mirrors Warhol’s work in serenity and passion, religious art and pornography, trash and diamonds. We watch “the modern man”s flirt with destruction and death. In in a bottomless hunger for strong effects and luxury, he fills life with voyeurism, cheap melodrama, buying and selling. All presented in a gilded frame: the world of opera or opera as the world.
