NO EXIT BY ANDY VORES - SEPTEMBER 19-22, 2013
The libretto for this opera is adapted directly from Jean-Paul Sartre's play of the same name, which tells the story of three people who are ushered into a room in hell only to discover that there is no greater demonic torture than each other.
No Exit was the second opera ever to be commissioned by Guerilla Opera, and it premiered in April 2008 to much acclaim. Lloyd Schwartz, formerly of The Boston Phoenix, wrote that No Exit was "the best new opera of 2008," while Richard Dyer, formerly of The Boston Globe, was quoted in The Boston Conservatory's STAGES Newsletter that No Exit was "a signature event of the city's 2007-2008 season."
This play coins the phrase "hell is other people," and in this completely new production stage director, Nathan Troup and scenic designer Julia Noulin-Mérat have taken that to heart. The ensemble performs in the round -surrounded with audience members.
