2016-2017 LOS ANGELES PRODUCTIONS

OCTOBER 19 - 23, 2016

LA OPERA @ REDCAT (LOS ANGELES, CA)

Music by Ted Hearne | Libretto by Mark Doten

Whistleblower Chelsea Manning gave hundreds of thousands of classified documents to WikiLeaks. However, The Source is not a linear depiction of the events leading to Manning’s eventual arrest and the 35-year prison sentence she has been serving since 2013, nor is it a retreading of the media hysteria surrounding her story. Instead, the opera approaches Manning's identity by engaging with the content of the leaks themselves: that is, the day-to-day accounts of the U.S.-led wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

JUNE 15-18, 2017

LA OPERA @ REDCAT (LOS ANGELES, CA)

Music by Kamala Sankaram | Libretto by Susan Yankowitz

Thumbprint, a 90-minute contemporary opera-theatre work by Kamala Sankaram and Susan Yankowitz, is inspired by the experiences of Mukhtar Mai, the first female victim of gang rape to bring her male attackers to justice in Pakistan. In lieu of a financial settlement, Mai requested the construction of schools for girls. She hoped to educate the young to help prevent the humiliation of signing their name with only a thumbprint.
