RULE BRITANNIA "A Low Opera In Grand Shite Style" is about the past as well as the human potential to act, or simply knowing that we just don't have it in us - so what's left? This "Low Opera" questions current and historical issues while interpreting social codes and philosophies. To playfully create a dialogue of opposing and concurring political views tracing the British rise to glory and the events that symbolized the erosion of power from domination to decline.

The Will of the Nation
is taken from a larger work: Rule Britannia "A Low Opera In Grand Shite Style", re-edited as an excerpt 2009.
