Join us for the inaugural launch of ORIGINAL VISION
a new developmental workshop series of innovative works by diverse librettist/composer teams.
Original Vision will debut three moving short films as epic 15-minute “first look” scenes with themes as diverse as hysterics, birdsong, and pancakes. In “Azure’s Hands“ by Livia Reiner and Lily Min Ren, the lead must explore the history and spectres that reside in her subconscious to find freedom. “Hysteria” by Molly Pease and Divya Maus boldly depicts how a set of heroines discover the external root cause of their motley emotions. Concluding the evening is “Untitled Aunt Jemima Opera” by Jason V. Barabba and June Carryl, a historical take on the Mammy figure and its dehumanizing effect.
Tickets are available to the online premiere event on a donation basis, starting at $10. For a minimum $100 sponsorship donation, a VIP ticket will include a post-show meet-and-greet with the artists via Zoom.
Original Vision: Maiden Voyage will premiere on YouTube from 7:00pm to 8:00pm PDT.
