New Opera: A Doll’s House

May 11, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$10 – $25

The Rites of Spring music festival features terrific original performances. A Doll’s House is no exception.

From the Rites of Spring website:

When Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House premiered in 1879, the character of Nora Helmer became a world-wide symbol of female empowerment. Fascinated by the possibility of symbolizing societal pressures through music, rising star composer Grace Oberhofer has recently developed a new opera based on Ibsen’s revolutionary play. Trapping her female heroine within an ornamental musical web, Ms. Oberhofer uses opera as a revolutionary act to highlight the caustic gender norms that pervade our society. This production will also feature unnerving marionette-inspired choreography by contemporary dancer Sarah Crane and radically surreal staging by Allison Benko.
