As I previously mentioned, San Francisco Lyric Opera returns next month after a three year hiatus with a new production of David Lang's "little match girl passion," done in a shear, minimalist style with a quartet of singers doubling on percussion. The quartet is Ann Moss, Celeste Winant, Eric Tuan and Eugene Brancoveanu. Matthew Antaky is the production's lighting designer, whose brilliant work was just seen in Ensemble Parallele's The Great Gatsby,.
The story will be told Butoh-style, with choreography performed by Anastazia Loiuse/Bad Unkl Sista. Barnaby Palmer will conduct and Grant will direct the production. the little match girl passion will be performed in the intimate ODC Theater on March 23, 24, and a matinee on March 25. Consider it not to missed.
