New York City is experiencing a renaissance of contemporary opera. Artists find boundary-pushing new expressions by crossing musical genres, creating stunning visuals, and defining new narratives. Join us to explore how and why experimental theatre artists successfully revive this art form, while classical opera is struggling. Artists and producers at the forefront of the contemporary New York opera scene will present their works and discuss the radically changing landscape of the field. Participating artists: Jecca Barry (General Manager, Beth Morrison Projects); Lisa Bielawa(Composer/Executive Producer); M. Lamar (Composer/Performer); Aaron Siegel(Composer/Producer, Experiments in Opera); Ashley Tata (Director) and thingNY (Composer/Performer collective); and Kristin Marting (Co-producer, PROTOTYPE and Artistic Director, HERE Arts Center).
