Libretto by April de Angelis. Commissioned by Glyndebourne.
Flight is a superb original modern-day operatic comedy which has found universal popularity, with many different productions and over 150 performances to date across the world. The opera has both laugh-out-loud and more serious moments as the story of the refugee who lives in the airport – inspired by the true-life story of an Iranian refugee who lived at Charles de Gaulle Airport, Paris, for 18 years – unfolds around the different characters who find themselves delayed in the terminal.
