Based on historical facts, the African descendent and Reunion born Trules composed the opera Maraina, recounting the story of the first settlers of the Indian Ocean islands. Voyaging between Reunion, Madagascar and Paris, An Opera from the Indian Ocean traces the cast's journey to the place where it all began: Fort-Dauphin in southern Madagascar, at the end of the African continent. The opera singers perform this contemporary music for an audience that has never before seen an opera. A fascinating voyage through time and space, between the 17th century seafarers ships and Madagascar today.
