Loosely based on Ovid's mythical drama Metamorphoses in a libretto by Miriam Seidel, Judgment of Midas details an epic musical battle between the gods Pan and Apollo. With King Midas as the witness-Pan, maker of "street music" and Apollo, maker of the godsí music, compete for supremacy as the foremost divine musician. What follows is a musical battle of diverse orchestration that showcases Kamran Ince's unique talents and genius as a composer. Mixing together an assortment of world, ethnic, popular and folk music, Ince uses his versatile compositional talents to depict the mythical musical duel of the gods. Recognized nationally and internationally, Kamran Ince finds in Judgment of Midas a vehicle for a classic mythic story and a musical triumph.
