Rhymes With Opera Presents: Coping Mechanisms by Bonnie Lander

SYNOPSIS/DESCRIPTION:
Rhymes With Opera concludes the 16-17 season with founding member Bonnie Lander’s improvisatory opera Coping Mechanisms, in which our ensemble of singers create their own narrative, textures, characters, and vocalizations, focusing on our need for both privacy and communication in modern society. The performers define their space and characters through music and action, while also coping with the inability to control each person’s boundaries from the others – both physically and sonically. Coping Mechanisms explores how individuals create personal spaces while simultaneously longing for community and connection, which can potentially threaten the sanctity of these very spaces

Carmen

SYNOPSIS/DESCRIPTION:
The border is a place of intense turmoil. This radical new adaptation strips down Bizet’s explosive masterpiece to the four central characters as they hurl themselves against real and imaginary fences. Carmen’s existential dare seduces the enemy in uniform – but in the game of sexual transgression, which lines cannot be crossed

Butterfly

SYNOPSIS/DESCRIPTION:
White male artists invented the tragic geisha, Madama Butterfly, and in so doing fueled a stereotype that has dominated Western imagination ever since. This daring new adaptation of Puccini’s iconic romance explodes that legacy of fetishization and exposes the Sorrow left behind
