SIX. TWENTY. OUTRAGEOUS.
Three Gertrude Stein Plays in the Shape of an Opera
When an oddball couple, their sassy housekeeper, a sewing machine, and a deranged radio all start singing, Stein’s playful language is transformed into the ecstatic and uncannily beautiful new opera from composer Daniel Thomas Davis, librettist Adam Frank, and director-designer Doug Fitch. This world premiere features an all-star lineup including vocalists Jacqueline Horner-Kwiatek, Ariadne Greif, and Andrew Fuchs, joined by the Momenta Quartet, under the musical direction of David Bloom.
