The Pocket Opera Players


With the New York City Opera shuttered (see you later, David H. Koch Theater), there’s no better time to explore New York City opera’s small, independent, and intelligent alternatives. Comedy and tragedy share a promising bill in the Pocket Opera Players’ world premieres of two one-act operas: POP founder (and MacArthur Fellow) John Eaton’s farcical Re-Routed, based on Dostoevsky’s “Bobok,” and Michael Dellaira’s The Death of Webern, which explores the (accidental?) shooting of Anton Webern by an American soldier in 1945.
