'A House in Bali'
Canadian composer Colin McPhee's 1947 memoir of the eight years he spent studying music and dance in a Balinese village is the source material for this new opera by Evan Ziporyn, who's spent three decades immersed in Indonesian culture himself. Gamelan Salukat and the Bang on a Can All-Stars provide the music for this extremely promising cross-cultural meditation on East versus West, tradition versus modernity, and innocence versus experience in a melodramatic and occasionally supernatural setting.
