ABOUT THE WORK
Alan Pierson and the Brooklyn Borough's oldest orchestra take the stage at Roulette's impressive new space, joined by the Brooklyn Youth Chorus Academy in presenting a multimedia event telling the tale of BROOKLYN VILLAGE, the borough's original settlement. Featuring world premieres by Brooklyn composers David T. Little (in collaboration with librettist Royce Vavrek), Matt Mehlan and Sarah Kirkland Snider, as well as a lead performance by songstress Mellissa Hughes and Lauren Worsham. The performance draws inspiration from Francis Guy's 1820 painting "Winter Scene in Brooklyn," which hangs in the Brooklyn Museum.
“David T. Little is amazing... Sarah K. Snider is too.””
