Look, it’s only an hour long. I think you should try it.
It’s directed and designed by James Darrah, a rising star of new-old opera (he lives in LA), Susie J. Lee, the Seattle artist forever experimenting with bodies and digital technologies, and Seattle early music wizard Stephen Stubbs. That team! And I’m excited to see the strangeness of the opera itself, its sideways angle on the myth. It’s said to be the earliest known opera in English, and for years it was thought to have been written by Aphra Behn. Curiosity!
