SHE, AFTER: two one-woman operas
UrbanArias presents two short, amusing and thought-provoking takes on the imagined lives of two famous literary women – AFTER their moments of notoriety.
Part One is NORA, IN THE GREAT OUTDOORS
This moving and dramatic opera deals with the repercussions of Nora’s final door slam in Ibsen’s A DOLL’S HOUSE. We see her confront her past and very uncertain future in a moving soliloquy that takes place immediately after she leaves her family.
Part Two is ALICE IN THE TIME OF THE JABBERWOCK
Alice has never been able to escape Wonderland. Once a child sensation and a crowned queen, she is now going through menopause while becoming increasingly disenchanted with her crazy companions.
This operatic double bill is one hour long.
Music by Daniel Felsenfeld, libretti by Will Eno and Robert Coover
Starring Metropolitan Opera Artist Emily Pulley
