Take a Surreal Journey with Opera Parallèle as Kurt Weill's Mahagonny-Songspiel collides with Francis Poulenc's Les mamelles de Tirésias for an original post-apocalyptic steampunk opera. In search of water and an elusive paradise across a desert wasteland, a theater troupe sings the jazz-infused melodies of Weill's short opera, co-written with Bertolt Brecht in 1927. Along the way, they come upon an audience for their performance of Poulenc's outrageously surreal satire about a man who gives birth to 40,000 babies in a single day. Surreal Journey fuses these two landmark works and brings them into the 21st century. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
“…they step in boldly, embracing a surrealism and a funky trashiness… they look at theaters as their visual playing field where anything goes.” —SF Bay Guardian
Local dance sensations Kunst-Stoff, partner with Lighthouse for the Blind to create “as we close their eyes,” a singular interactive dance experience that invites audiences to “see” with other senses and to think differently about what dance can be. “In-Sight” features the company’s signature airborne athleticism set against Cara Judea Alhadeff’s backdrop of large, lush, unnerving photographs. Minimalist and messy, Kunst-Stoff delivers another not-to-be-missed experimental adventure.
