This production is truly some of the most innovative work I've seen since moving to Nashville. I am a great fan of composer David Lang's work and, upon hearing plans of the production months ago, I wondered how the Nashville Opera would tackle something so out of line from their usual fare. I needn't have worried. With masterful playing from members of ALIAS Chamber Ensemble this opera comes to life, infused with all the darkness and mystery of the South's history. Especial recognition should go to the ensemble who portray the slaves in the story. Much of the intensity of the production is derived from their performance. More contemporary opera, please!
Butterbean is rad. GF and vegetarian made AMAZING.
I'm a classical musician and I work in the industry (I'm also not a person who can shell out money, for what it's worth). I love classical music. But WRVU doesn't need to change at all from what it is. I can't believe this is happening after everyone's work.
