Can You Hear The Light : concert aria from 'Tesla, Lightning in His Hand' (Zraka Nebeska) / Constantine Koukias ; text by Marianne Fisher.

The Aria has been adapted from my opera about the life and work of Nicola Tesla, a Serbian American engineer and inventor (1856 - 1943).
Tesla's work fell into relative obscurity
following his death, until 1960, when the General Conference on
Weights and Measures named the SI unit of magnetic flux density
the tesla in his honour. There has been a resurgence in popular
interest in Tesla since the 1990s. This is the final aria form
the opera. Tesla sitting amongst stacked pigeon cages holding
pigeons. He has one pigeon on his lap and he is alone in his New York
Can you hear the future?
A world of endless potential
What power What mystery
Ko-je li mo-ci ko-je li taj-ne
Can you hear the light?
Is my work but an echo in the wilderness?
A ray from heaven
My name is Nikola Tesla
Do you remember me?
I can see the future
Koje li moci Koje li tajne
