Chin: Alice in Wonderland (staged with video) (c. 100 minutes)
About This Performance
Celebrated for her innovative multimedia events, director/designer/video artist Netia Jones is creating a new production of Alice in Wonderland, a glittering, crazed and uproarious operatic tour de force by composer Unsuk Chin and librettist David Henry Hwang in its West Coast premiere. An exuberant collision of styles and influences, the riotous exhilaration and jet-black humor of Chin’s sound world meet their match in the darkly imaginative illustrations of acclaimed gonzo-artist Ralph Steadman (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas), which Jones will combine with live action, interactive animated projections, eye-popping costumes and choreography to conjure Chin's brilliant take on Lewis Carroll’s flights of imagination.
Presented in collaboration with LA Opera.
Come for: The West Coast premiere of a Lewis Carroll remix.
And more: Part of our new in/SIGHT series, where every concert is a sensory feast for eye and ear.
