The Ashcan Orchestra: Apollo's Accidental Answer
Tonight composer Pat Spadine's Ashcan Orchestra perform their two-act chamber opera Apollo's Accidental Answer in it's entirety for the first time. Re-imagining of the ancient myth of Cassandra, the work presents an eyewitness account of the evolution of the universe, as the heroine struggles to give order to the visions that confuse her mind. Orchestrated for toy instruments, saw, water glasses, percussion and handmade gadgetry, with a sculptural backdrop of televisions and mechanical effects, the opera is a culmination of many facets of the ensemble's DIY ethos.
