Visitations: Theotokia and The War Reporter
Gradual and insidious, auditory hallucinations warp minds with “loud thoughts,” that often deceive, derange, and force sufferers into a world of crippling paranoia. Visitations, the New York premiere of the double-bill, semi-staged multi-media concert of one-act chamber operas by composer Jonathan Berger and librettist Dan O’Brien unravels the phenomenon. In Theotokia, penetrate the consciousness of a man who, assailed by hallucinatory voices, is taunted and seduced by the mother of God. Uncover the true story of Pulitzer Prize-winning combat journalist Paul Watson in The War Reporter, where he seeks to stifle the haunting voice of an American soldier whose corpse he photographed in the streets of Mogadishu.

Asphalt Orchestra Plays the Pixies: Surfer Rosa
Screaming electric guitars transform into brass exhortations; a chorus of saxophones blare searing lyrics, and a lone piccolo shrieks feedback while a 3-piece percussion section thrashes and grooves. Asphalt Orchestra discovers a new direction for exhilarating acoustic music by paying tribute to a modern monument – legendary rock band the Pixies’ Surfer Rosa – for the album’s 25th anniversary. A cult hit when it was released, the album’s influence has grown to mammoth proportions over the years; it is now considered one of the most important recordings of its time. Asphalt’s Surfer Rosa is raw, dirty, and utterly captivating. This project debuted at Lincoln Center Out of Doors in July 2013, and this is the first chance to hear this music in an intimate club setting.
