Elsewhere: a cello opera
From what began as a unique collaboration between cellist Maya Beiser and theater director Robert Woodruff comes ELSEWHERE, a new CelloOpera. A triptych of daring compositions by Eve Beglarian, Michael Gordon and Missy Mazzoli, ELSEWHERE is an imaginative and psychological retelling of the biblical story of Lot’s wife.
“ELSEWHERE, Beiser’s most ambitious project to date, fuses dance, song, theater and film in a dynamic amalgamation that unapologetically pushes boundaries- much like the performer herself.” – Time Out New York
This hourlong mélange f contemporary classical music, spoken text and eye-teasing visuals provides a smashing vehicle for Beiser’s bold virtuosity” – New York Post
