About the event

This performance provides a rare, behind the scenes look at early stages of groundbreaking artistic productions from world-renowned artists. Sophia Brous and Yuka Honda, two National Sawdust Artists-in-Residence, refresh operatic traditions by presenting two large-scale works for the stage in the early stages of their development. Audiences will have a unique opportunity to witness a “first look” at these projects with ambitions to be presented in front of a global audience, and meet and ask questions of the brilliant creators behind those projects. This showcase will feature opera as you have never seen it before, completely reimagined for the modern audience.

National Sawdust co-founder, Artistic Director, and composer Paola Prestini will lead the Q&A session after each performance. Multicultural new-music ensemble Khemia will open the evening with a presentation of their completed multimedia project, Fragility.
