James McCarthy’s acclaimed cantata dramatically recounts key episodes in the story of Alan Turing, the Second World War codebreaker, brilliant mathematician, and ‘father of modern computer science’. In bold musical contrasts of dynamic energy and pathos, the score portrays Turing both as hero and outsider, a gay man of complex inner being inseparable from his genius, yet one who was destroyed by the unforgiving homophobia of his time.
