Man Will Not Outlive The Weather

Amber Vistein's chamber opera premieres at Brown University's Granoff Center

Amber Vistein’s ominously titled new chamber opera Man Will Not Outlive The Weather makes its premiere at the Granoff Center. A  PhD candidate at Brown, Vistein based each of the opera’s seven movements on a meteorological event – volcano eruption, deep fog, hurricane, and so on – running field recordings through a computer-assisted orchestration program. The opera was written for mezzo-soprano, electronics, and four instruments (flute, cello, piano and percussion). Vistein’s goal is “to create not only a hybrid acoustic ecology, but a mixture of languages: music and speech representing human languages and field recordings representing a natural language.”

Doors open at 7:30 and seating is first come, first served.
