THE 2019-2020 TOURING CALENDAR

September 4-14, 2019

TEATRO MUNICIPAL, SÃO PAULO, BRAZIL

Music by Ellen Reid | Libretto by Roxie Perkins | Directed by James Darrah | Conducted by Roberto Minczuk

Locked away in a sterile room, a sickly child Bibi and her doting mother Lumee are each other’s sole protectors from the unknown. When a mysterious illness lurking outside their door leaves Bibi unable to walk, her youthful curiosity begins to simmer and a seductive external existence can no longer be ignored. p r i s m, the Pulitzer Prize winning opera by Ellen Reid and Roxie Perkins, is a haunting, kaleidoscopic work of opera-theatre that traverses the elasticity of memory after trauma.

September 27-28, 2019

KRANNERT CENTER, UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS CHAMPAIGN/URBANA

Created by Geoff Sobelle | Scenic Design by Steven Dufala | Directed by Lee Sunday Evans | Original Songs by Elvis Perkins

HOME is a large-scale performance work that explores and explodes the relationship between “House” and “Home.” A visual physical spectacle, HOME combines dance, illusion, live music, home-spun engineering, and an inventive use of audience interaction to compose a work that asks, where is home? If it is not a place, what is home? In the face of entropy, we struggle to build infra- structure, family, community, art. We fail, and we try again.

The 2016 Pulitzer Prize winner Angel’s Bone follows the plight of two fallen angels whose nostalgia for earthly delights finds them far from heaven. They are found battered and bruised by a man and his wife, known only as Mr. and Mrs. X.E., who have longed for a better life than their modest middle-class status. Mr. and Mrs. X.E. bring the angels into their home and set out to nurse them back to health: they bathe them, wash the dirt from their nails…then lock them in the root cellar and decide that this is their chance to be wealthy and legendary.

SAN DIEGO OPERA

Music by Paola Prestini | Libretto and Performed by Rinde Eckert | Directed and Co-Scenic Designed by Julian Crouch

Aging Magician is a composite of sonic and visual elements that paints an allegory on time, youth, and the peculiar magic of ordinary life, and, perhaps, the ordinary magic of a peculiar life. Accompanied by a string quartet and a choir of young people, Aging Magician moves us along with Harold from the surgical repair of a timepiece to the magic show of time itself, lives and deaths, appearances and disappearances. The man’s vibrant last adventure is brought to life by a team of multidisciplinary artists who combine music, theatre, puppetry, instrument making, and scenic design to create an enduring work for the stage.

Music and Libretto by David T Little | Film by Bill Morrison | Directed by Ashley Tata | Conducted by Lidiya Yankovskaya | Featuring Nathan Gunn

Soldier Songs is an evening-length multimedia event that combines elements of theater, opera, rock-infused concert music, and film footage by Bill Morrison to explore the perceptions versus the realities of the Soldier, the exploration of loss and exploitation of innocence, and the difficulty of expressing the truth of war.

June 2020

HOPKINS CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS AT DARTMOUTH COLLEGE

Writer, Composer, & Performer Joseph Keckler

Joseph Keckler and an intimate musical ensemble lead the audience through a series of vignettes, each like a stop on a late-night train-- from Paris to Hamburg, Michigan to Times Square and the symbolic space of The Crossroads, a place of danger and possibility. The text dances between comedy, commentary and communion, while the score features smoky pop songs, propulsive invocations, and leaps into the operatic.
