An Opera For Man
Carmen is too spatiotemporally parochial;
Alpha of the Centaur is about space travel whereas the Festival needs pre-space travel input;
La Traviata is too unvisual;
Gotterdamerung is mythically significant and visual but a modern audience would require realistic effects that would distract from the live performers.
However, Adzel resembles Fafner and sings well.
Solution: allow this alien visitor to express his appreciation of Terrestrial culture and thus to glorify humanity by getting Adzel to play Fafner! Unexpected yet appropriate.
