'Experiments in Opera'
The composers consortium presents six "radio operas" exploring the potential of narrative music minus visuals. Experimental soprano Joan La Barbara is featured in John King's Ping, an electronic adaptation of a Samuel Beckett short story, and Paul Pinto's Thomas Paine in Violence, which imagines the founding father's final mad days. The evening's other works concern skateboard star Rodney Mullen, stamp collecting, the secret lives of objects, and life on Mars.
