Wild Geese Presents: Ubu Roy
Ubu Roy is a new one-act comic chamber opera by Peter Thompson. Ubu Roy is a political satire, based on the notorious Absurdist play, Ubu Roi, by Alfred Jarry.  It is the story of Père Ubu, a stupid, lazy, and gluttonous nobody, whose strength and intellectual prowess exist only in his own self-obsessed imagination. Goaded by by his equally selfish and rapacious partner, Mère Ubu, Ubu improbably manages to assassinate the King of a mythologized Poland, and place himself on the throne. The two destroy everything of value around them, before literally sailing away when things go sideways, leaving the wreckage of war and misery behind them.

Presented in partnership with Wild Geese, Hamillton's Chamber Music Collective. Erika Reiman will serve as musical director, with Christine Chesebrough on violin and Gordon Cleland on cello.
