The libretto contains on 90 pages drawings, various musical notations and the complete text of the opera (arias, dialogues, stage directions). The opera tells the story of a young artist, Hannes Sabians, moving through various art locations in the fictitious city of Muquay. Together with his mate, Alain Bisam he is planning to stage a performance entitled "Missing: Discourse" for the NAP NITE, that should become a milestone in their young career. But finally everything goes wrong, when the discourse hits the stage. Based on the arthistoric "Mundus Inversus" concept, the protagonists of the art scene are typified through different animal species. Pdf download of the publication is available on request.
