ABOUT THE OPERA:
Before there was Eve, there was Lilith -- Adam's first lover, once human, made from the same dust: sensuality's queen, bride of the Angel of Death, mother of opposing cosmic forces, strong, willful, unstoppable. She rules the storms of the skies and the heart -- night owl, holy woman of power. From ancient tales of Gilgamesh and Enkidu, to King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba, to Greece's Lamiae and Daughters of Hecate, to Native American lore and Victorian Gothic Horror, Lilith looms large in the minds of men and women, when the lights go out and they enter dream time. Some call her demon, vampire, child killer -- others, mother, lover, elder, friend. But whatever the appellations, she persists in the realms of our imaginations, from holy books and high literature to popular feminist concert series, TV shows, and Japanese anime. Child of Light? Daughter of Darkness? Both? Neither? You decide.
Join composer-clarinetist Demetrius Spaneas, poet-violist Alexandra Honigsberg, dramatic soprano Christina Rohm, and pianist James Siranovich on a journey that will reveal just what a powerful actor-singer and creative instrumental trio can do. The Lilith Project is conceived as a modern American suitcase opera, a chamber monodrama: intense, human, universal, compact in form and forces, accessible. Long-time colleagues in many configurations over the years, Lilith marks this creative team's debut.
