Christopher Stark From the Field WORLD PREMIERE
Laura Schwendinger Artemisia WORLD PREMIERE
We focus on the art and milieu of Italian painter Artemisia Gentileschi and Depression Era photographer Dorothea Lange, in two chamber operas with projected images that come to life. Laura Schwendinger’s new opera tackles Gentileschi’s struggles and triumphs as she battles inequality and reveals hidden stories. Christopher Stark’s micro opera explores the lives of migrants fleeing the Dust Bowl.
