The Opera x Metamorphoses is a multi-genre devised theatre piece based on four tales from Ovid’s Metamorphoses. This project is primarily an exploration of relationships: between desire and circumstance, spiritual and physical, god and mortal, sister and brother, dream and reality. We are drawing a cast and creative team from the finest artists in the Yale community to create what Wagner termed a gesamtkunstwerk, a universal artwork that seeks to combine all of the art forms: opera, dance, design, acting, music, lighting, projection. We are applying to the Arts Discretionary Fund in order to facilitate our development/rehearsal process in the Spring 2018 term as well as a public performance of our opera, to be staged on campus at the Off-Broadway Theater during 22-27 April. We believe our interdisciplinary show presents a unique opportunity for undergraduate artists to unite and collaborate with graduate students and professional dancers.
