Opera House

Here is a glimpse of our recent premiere of Scheherezade.  In the first half, it rains.   Recorded loops of Rimsky-Korsakov's score play on miked turntables.  In the second half, the curtain rises to reveal an enormous sand pile dominating the back corner, and the sound of the orchestra fills the opera house.  We dance in front of, behind, around, and through it all.
