About the Book
Arion and the Dolphin is an opera in nine scenes for professionals and community performers. The libretto is by Vikram Seth and the music is composed by Alec Roth.
Recounted with Seth's inimitable charm, it is the story of Arion, a young musician at the court of Periander in Corinth. Thrown overboard on his return from a musical contest in Sicily, Arion is saved and befriended by a dolphin. Written for amateurs and professionals, this is a story which will appeal to young and old.
