anatomy theater premieres with Los Angeles Opera
David Lang and Mark Dion's new opera, anatomy theater, received its premiere this past June with LA Opera in a collaboration with Beth Morrison Projects. It was my pleasure to create the role of the anatomist and moral lecturer, Baron Peel, in the production. The staging was by Bob McGrath and Ridge Theater, graced by projections and video by Bill Morrison and Laurie Olinder. The amazingly talented cast included Peabody Southwell as Sarah Osborne (no relation!!), Marc Kudisch as Joshua Crouch, and Timur as Ambrose Strang. The opera will be reprised at BRIC in Brooklyn in January 2017.
Opera News reviewed the production in the September 2016 issue.
