opera x metamorphoses

by Rocky Bostick

The Opera x Metamorphoses is a multi-genre devised theatre piece
based on four tales from Ovid’s Metamorphoses. This project is
primarily an exploration of relationships: between desire and
circumstance, spiritual and physical, god and mortal, sister and
brother, dream and reality. We are drawing a cast and creative team
from the finest artists in the Yale community to
create what Wagner termed a gesamtkunstwerk, a universal artwork that
seeks to combine all of the art forms: opera, dance, design, acting,
music, lighting, projection. We are applying to the Arts Discretionary
Fund in order to facilitate our development/rehearsal process in the
Spring 2018 term as well as a public performance of our opera, to be
staged on campus at the Off-Broadway Theater during 22-27 April.
We believe our interdisciplinary show presents
a unique opportunity for undergraduate artists to unite and
collaborate with graduate students and professional dancers.
