THE INSPIRATION

Longing is not only the predominant emotion in the hearts of the parted lovers Layla and Majnun; it is also the inner force that drives Orpheus to go down into the underworld, the kingdom of the dead, to recover his Eurydice. Majnun’s old father longs to see his lost son again and, in the two stories, animals long for the tranquil beauty of the music of the singers and poets Majnun and Orpheus.

Longing is something everyone experiences every day: when we think of love or a lost love, of times past or a better future, of returning home or finding a better place to live. We long for a peaceful community and a meaningful life – and we express those longings in music, words, and a wide variety of other artistic forms.
