The Ballad of Ishtar *
Some of the most out-of-the-box creatives in town — Heather Bentley, Beth Fleenor, Ahamefule J. Oluo, Wayne Horvitz, Evan Flory-Barnes and okanomodé — will assemble for what is being billed as an electro-acoustic, semi-improvised opera about the worldwide rape culture crisis. Twelve musicians in a performance about chaos, the ugly side of humanity and the Babylonian goddess of sex and war. If you go, I so want to hear what you think.
More on the opera's creation can be found here:
