The melodrama for chorus, actors and trombone is based on a true historical event – the Allies’ 16 June 1944 bombing raid on the Apollo refinery in Bratislava. The storyline bears on the real news from the life of the interwar multilingual Slovak capital, reflecting the tumultuous 1940s. The libretto makes use of archival materials.
