“Lunar Modules” represents part two in David Cox’s three-part “Rocket Opera” in which here the events of the US Apollo/SaturnV landing on the moon are presented in audiovisual grand musical performance. Baritone John Smalley and Soprano Rachel Levin lead the Cox ensemble as the themes explore the existential, aesthetic and technical shapes, forms and ideas of 1960s cold war space-race USA. The focus is upon a German Rocket Engineer and a well known MIT female software engineer whose work on the DSKY navigation computer for the Apollo space program helped save the lives of the crews.
