Breaking Bad — Ozymandias (2014, World Premiere)
January 2014, New York City

Video Clip: Sung Jin Hong prepares the sold-out standing-room-only audience to play a significant role in the fourth movement, "Jesse's Dream ('Bitch')."

The opera Breaking Bad — Ozymandias consists of five movements:
I. Chemistry
II. Fugue
III. The Moment
IV. Jesse's Dream ("Bitch")
V. Ozymandias

The composition explores the question: are we all breaking bad? Are we, to some extent, guilty of the Greek themes of hubris (extreme pride) in the pursuit of arete (excellence) and kleos (glory)?

Walt is haunted by the shadows of memories, ghosts of his regrets, and the bitter knowledge that those closest to him have paid the greatest price for his metamorphosis.

The length of the opera is almost 50 minutes.
