PROTOTYPE: Opera/Theatre/Now, the premiere of our festival of visionary music-theatre and opera-theatre works, was featured from Jan 09 to 18, 2013.
- “Prototype is the teenage hacker of the opera world, and in its first public action, it’s left a message blinking on Big Opera’s screen: CAN YOU DO THIS?”
- — New York Magazine
- “'Sumeida’s Song' is an intensely dramatic 60-minute four-character opera with a searing score that deftly draws from Arabic and Western contemporary musical sources. ”
- — New York Times
- “'Soldier Songs' (2006), [...] has a rock-infused rhythmic vitality and melodic inventiveness that keep the audience perpetually off-balance, elements that made his "Dog Days" so exciting.”
- — The wall street journal
About the show
PROTOTYPE: Opera/Theatre/Now is an annual festival of visionary music-theatre and opera-theatre works by pioneering artists from New York and around the world. A new body of work is on the brink of exploding out of New York and onto the national scene, as an exciting new generation of composers and collaborators focus on the creation of chamber-sized theatre works in new and unique ways. PROTOTYPE is at the forefront of the movement, showcasing these works for new audiences and presenters alike.
