(5/5/2003)

The Bali Amateur Theatrical Society (BATS) will premiere a chamber opera created by a group of Bali expatriates. "A World of our Own," written by Ora Jonasson and Jorge Nelson, with arrangements and orchestration by Erasmus Meinerts depicts the challenges of expatriate life in the new millennium - touching on the themes of globalization, isolation, and terrorism in two acts present entirely by a cast and orchestra drawn from local and expatriate residents of Bali.

Synopsis

The story takes place on the island of Oblivia, a tropical paradise known for its peaceful inhabitants and easy-going lifestyle. Long a tourist destination, recent changes have come to Oblivia as multi-national companies have discovered that the island holds vast reserves of precious metals and petroleum bringing a large expatriate community to the island.

Local people live very humbly surviving from subsistence farming. By contrast, the expatriates enjoy an extravagant lifestyle characterized by overseas bank accounts, servants, private club memberships, children attending international schools, chauffeur driven cars, dining in fine restaurants and living behind a fenced compound in comfortable air-conditioned houses. This disparity of economic circumstance has given seed to a recent rise in political unrest in Oblivia.

It is June, time for graduation at the international school, and one expatriate family is very proud to see their son achieve valedictorian status. The festivities are interrupted when the father announces that the family was going to be transferred to a new location in another country. His wife is distraught having managed to successfully settle down in this community. The son is mad because he wanted to spend the holidays with his friends surfing before going to university. The young daughter is also distressed at the news of the move, she has fallen in love with a local boy.

Against this background a story of love and tragedy gradually unfolds.

Sponsors

"A World of Our Own" is presented with the generous support of the Sheraton Nusa Indah Resort, Bali International Convention Center, Bali Discovery Tours and Bali International School.

Tickets

The exclusive, one night engagement will be held on Friday, May 9, 2003 at 8:00 pm at the Bali International Convention Center in Nusa Dua. Seating: Orchestra Rp. 200,000; Main level Rp. 150,000; and Balcony Rp. 100,000. For reservations, call 08123628947 or 08123970465.

All proceeds from the performance will be donated to help the victims from the October 12th tragedy through the Yayasan Kemanusiaan Ibu Pertiwi (YKIP) Foundation.
