UNSEAL UNSEAM (electro-acoustic opera)

Highways Performance, Los Angeles

UNSEAL UNSEAM (electro-acoustic opera) An immersive, electroacoustic opera about one woman’s journey to leave her abusive husband. Based on the story of Bluebeard’s Castle, director Shannon Knox reimagines Bluebeard’s wife, Judith, as she travels through her own psychological purgatory to reclaim her life. In this unusual combination of noise and extended vocal techniques accompanied by electronic music, composers Sharon Chohi Kim and Micaela Tobin create a lustrous cacophony of amplified objects and operatic singing wherein the audience is invited to witness the intimate rituals of Judith’s transformation. https://highwaysperformance.org/event/unseal-unseam-an-electroacoustic-opera/2017-10-06/
