About the Works
A re-imagining of Muller's Winterreisse cycle freely set to improvisational jazz music, Winter's Journey chronicles the story of an unnamed traveler as she sings a long and evolving mad scene after being spurned by her lover.
Saturnalia, a co-production with Roulette in its new Brooklyn home, tells the story of three American men visiting Bangkoktheir version of paradisewho find themselves confronted with a metaphysical detective at a mysterious club.
Dark Sisters, a co-commission and co-production with Gotham Chamber Opera and Opera Company of Philadelphia, is a suspenseful, emotional, and lyrical depiction of one woman's struggle with life and faith and the universal dilemma of whether to stay or leave. The opera opens a window into the lives of Eliza and her sister wives, members of the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints (FLDS), a polygamous sect based in the southwestern United States.
