The Blind

The Blind is an a cappella opera created by Lera Auerbach and directed by John La Bouchardière. Here, a new dimension of opera comes alive with an unexpected physical and aural journey in a one-act experience that tells the story of twelve nameless characters stranded on a desert island waiting for a rescue that never arrives. Loosely based on an English adaptation of the controversial play Les aveugles by Nobel Prize winner Maurice Maeterlinck, The Blind redefines the boundaries between audience and performer, bringing theatergoers a heightened experience of opera and all of its possibilities.

Carl Testa

Carl-Testa---IrisRecord-release show for Carl Testa’s new album Iris. Iris contains four tracks of Testa’s live improvisations with a self-designed, generative computer program that samples the sounds of the bass and re-organizes them into an enveloping sonic environment. Each piece has its own tonal and textural identity, yet the suite conveys a unified sense of the composer’s electro-acoustic vision.
