AOP FIRST CHANCE DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP

SIX. TWENTY. OUTRAGEOUS.
THREE GERTRUDE STEIN PLAYS IN THE SHAPE OF AN OPERA

Join AOP for a music reading of the new opera SIX. TWENTY. OUTRAGEOUS. When an oddball couple, their sassy housekeeper, a sewing machine, and a deranged radio all start singing, Stein’s playful language is transformed into the ecstatic and uncannily beautiful new opera from composer Daniel Thomas Davis, librettist Adam Frank, and director- designer Doug Fitch. From a shopping expedition that turns into an erotic adventure to a presidential election party that goes prophetically and horribly wrong, Stein’s genius for upending convention is made startlingly relevant to our own cultural and political moment. 

Featuring:
Ariadne Greif, soprano
Jacqueline Horner-Kwiatek, mezzo
Andrew Fuchs, tenor
with the Momenta String Quartet and pianist Joel Harder

Musical Director: David Bloom

Run time: 90 minutes, plus discussion and reception
