Roulette, 509 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn, NY
Afterword, The AACM (as) Opera + International Contemporary Ensemble
Friday, May 22, 8:00 pm
Saturday, May 23, 8:00 pm
This concert serves as a preview of the musical elements of the Afterword project. Despite its nominal designation as an “opera,” Afterword departs markedly from operatic convention. Future, fully staged performances are envisioned as combining pre-structured music, text, scenography, and movement in juxtaposition with analogous elements improvised in real time. The opera’s singers will be called upon to act and move, as well as taking on multiple roles, creating and transforming their own appearances and personae.
