SHE, AFTER

Saturday, July 26 | 8:00 PM
Scholes Street Studio
375 Lorimer St, Brooklyn, NY 11206
DIRECTIONS

The Secret Opera presents the one-woman opera She, After by frequent AOP composer Daniel Felsenfeld. Developed at AOP, She, After is a pair of monodramas about exits--what happens when you leave, or when you are not able? The libretti are by two literary superstars - Will Eno (Nora, In the Great Outdoors) and Robert Coover (Alice in the Time of the Jabberwock) - and address a contemporary view of two classic Victorian touchstone characters. The opera will feature soprano Alexis Rodda. Nell Flanders conducts and Sarah Outhwaite directs.

TICKETS: $20-$30
