Guerilla Opera's Encore Series Continues with GALLO

How do landscape and human kind transform and shape each other, and which came first?... Guerilla Opera gets wild in exploration to find out the answer to the age-old "chicken or the egg" question. The ensemble continues their "Encore Series" in April with the 2014 world premiere production of GALLO, a fable in music in one act. With music and libretto by award winning Ken Ueno and stage direction by Sarah Meyers (Metropolitan Opera), GALLO investigates how the landscape and humankind affect one another. The experimental opera is sung in English, Latin, and "Chickenese" and is 90 minutes in duration.

Gallo is an untamed, experimental opera that was an immersive, interactive experience for the live audience. The theatre was transformed into a boardwalk bordering beach comprising Cheerios, which represents a container for memories. Performed in the round, this opera is "rich in inspiration" (The Boston Globe) and features soprano, now Artistic Director, Aliana de la Guardia in a Houdini box filled with cheerios and countertenor Douglas Dodson in a chicken costume.

With tons of accessible digital programming the Guerillas are ready, willing and able to bring transformative experiences to Boston and beyond!
