The central point of the piece is created by the soprano solo ATTHIS (after texts of the ancient Greek poet Sappho) and the baritone solo HAIKU, which are now joined by the new work for female voice choir, nocturno.
Haas has also composed new interludes to join the works together and to create a new musical and scenic dialogue.
