PROTOTYPE: Opera/Theatre/Now burst onto the opera scene in 2013, unleashing a powerful wave of opera-theatre and music-theatre from a new generation of classical and post-classical composers and librettists. Focusing on innovative chamber-scale works, PROTOTYPE shows opera like it’s never been seen before: high-tech, edgy, and up-close. Following the smashing success of its first two seasons, PROTOTYPE’s visionary line-up is quickly becoming a can’t-miss annual tradition.
Beth Morrison Projects and HERE have come together to bring you this striking celebration of opera and artists, presenting new works by Stefan Weisman/David Cote, Bora Yoon, Carmina Slovenica, Todd Almond, Ellen Reid/Amanda Jane Shank, Paola Prestini/Rinde Eckert/Julian Crouch, and Timur and the Dime Museum.
Join us January 8-17, 2015 for another dazzling showcase of daring opera-theatre and music-theatre works from the most exciting 21st-century artists.
“Timidity is not a problem for Prototype’s trio of founding producers, Kristin Marting, Beth Morrison, and Kim Whitener. In its second season, the twelve-day festival found the crevices in New York’s underground opera life and filled them with inventive shows and intrepid audiences.”
