THE WOOSTER GROUP:
West Coast premiere at Redcat June 11 - 21
The Wooster Group's production of Francesco Cavalli's La Didone
takes up a work from the days when opera was an emerging art form, born out of the power
of the voice and the lute in pure acoustic space, and sets it down in a new world
splintered by telepresence and made brazen by the electric guitar.
Then, traveling further forward in time, and stirring
another Italian cultural artifact into the mix, the Group brings into collision the
ancient shipwreck tale of Aeneas with the crashed spaceships of Mario Bava's
1965 low-budget sci-fi horror film Terrore nello spazio (Planet of the Vampires).
American Cinematheque Members
will get a special ticket discount for this event at the Redcat Theatre. Details have
been e-mailed to members.
