Instead of an opera (or maybe it will be an opera, I don't know yet), I am writing a musical.

The main character is a teenage boy who has autism spectrum disorder ("wrong planet syndrome") and has musical savantism. He has always been gifted but never at socializing and making friends. Then he finds out he actually is an alien from another planet, and gets taken to his home world where he finally fits in. He learns there that he was sent to earth to save it from an impending collapse. He has to choose between living comfortably and happily in a place he fits in or saving a world that never loved him back.

Antagonist: An increasingly authoritarian leader who is hellbent on dividing the nation and remaining in power. 🤔

This scene is when he's being lifted into the heavens and taken to his true home.

Im coming home, I'm coming home, I'm coming home, where I belong

I'm coming home, I'm coming home, I'm coming home

to where I be- to where I be- to where I belong

 

excuse my sub par singing

Wow!  What a unique story which is also very culturally appropriate!  Your singing is literally out of this world in this one!  You are very convincing as an alien I must say.  I hope you don't get embarrassed later and take this down - I'm still wanting to listen to that "Pure Imagination" remix you did.  Great concept and idea to make this a song - very harmonically rich too!

That was certainly so much cooler than I was expecting. Your singing added so much to this!! Really, I feel what you say is “sub-par” really adds to the atmosphere of this creature being alien, with some of the off-pitch notes and strange “lyrics.” I half expected a THX glissando from the orchestra at some points lol. You should find a way to include that in your score/writing, as it adds to the uniue atmosphere you’ve created a lot.

Keep writing, friend!

Sounds really awesome! I can totally imagine this on stage. You've really succeeded in evoking the 'alien' theme with the harmonies and orchestration. Hope to hear more songs from this project in the future!  (I'm also trying to write a musical at the moment so I know the struggle 😂)

 

thanks, u will! 🙏

thats really cool btw, I hope to hear yours too!!
