NYC Premiere | Operatic Poem

Ellen West

Inspired by one of the earliest cases of existential analysis, ELLEN WEST is a remarkable new opera that explores the emotional, psychological, and physical challenges of a woman struggling with perceptions of her body, her relationship with food, and the world closing in around her. 

January 14*, 15, 17 & 18 at 8pm | January 19 at 3pm

$35–$75
$30 with PROTO Pack
$60 with Premium PROTO Pack

The performance on January 14 at 8pm will be a special benefit performance. Tickets will cost $65-$150

World Premiere | Opera-Theatre

Blood Moon

A poetic, opera-theatre piece for three characters who reckon with the past on the night of a full moon. It is a meditation on the end of life, the nature of joy, regret, and whether atonement is possible.

January 9, 12, 15–17 at 7:30pm | January 11 at 2pm

$35–$75
$30 with PROTO Pack
$60 with Premium PROTO Pack

World Premiere | Chamber Opera in 13 Movements

Magdalene

A meditation on transformation and desire scored by the collective voices of fourteen women. The opera invites the audience into the interior life of a woman seeking to heal the split between the sacred and the sexual. Mary Magdalene becomes the mask she wears, a reminder that our voices are never alone, but always echoed by a chorus of women from history.

January 11, 13, 15, 17 at 7:30pm | January 12 at 2pm | January 16 at 6:30pm

NYC Premiere | Multi-Media Concert

Iron & Coal

Leading a 200-person ensemble, composer Jeremy Schonfeld searches for answers and meaning in his relationship with his father, an Auschwitz survivor, following his death. This multi-media concert celebrates the indomitable spirit of our ancestors and the legacy we carry with us.

January 10, 11 at 8pm

$35–$75

U.S. Premiere | Dance/Music-Theatre

Cion: Requiem of Ravel’s Boléro

Set in a graveyard filled with cries of mourning and the poignant music of South African Isicathamiya singers, CION vividly elicits emotions associated with death. Physically charged and visually striking, the work draws inspiration from Zakes Mda’s novel CION and Ravel’s BOLÉRO.

January 15 at 7:30pm | January 16-18 at 8pm | January 18 at 2pm

$10–$75

NYC Premiere | Opera-Theatre

REV. 23

Lauded as an “an endlessly unfolding chain of highly controlled polystylism” (Boston Musical Intelligencer), Julian Wachner’s REV. 23 is an exploration of an “unpublished” new chapter of the Book of Revelation. With an audacious libretto by Cerise Lim Jacobs, this new striking production by director James Darrah takes us on a fantastical journey through the myths of our collective unconscious.
