He has conquered half of the planet’s land masses. He has united his Mongolian people. His name plants terror in the hearts and minds of his foes. Now Genghis Khan wants the ultimate prize: eternal life. Music composed by Graham Reynolds and a libretto written by Jason Neulander create an opera that asks the question: How do you want to be remembered?

“Hail The Conquering Opera Genghis Khan … a mesmerizing alternative opera by composer Graham Reynolds with libretto by Neulander, is both [intimate, yet epic].”
— Jamie Smith-Cantara, Austin American Statesman
“Surprising … absorbing … haunting.”
— Robert Faires, The Austin Chronicle
“Jason Neulander and Graham Reynolds’s alt opera Genghis Khan is monumental. Definitely the culmination of both careers to date.”
— Michael Barnes, Austin American Statesman
