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
Reviews & Ratings
Jim Jefferies, hailing from Australia, headlines around the globe. One of the most sought after comedians, his shows sell out annually at Montreal’s Just For Laughs and Edinburgh’s Fringe Comedy Festival. His unprecedented rise in the comedy world is due to his charming, Carlinesque storytelling. Always surprising and controversial, his Jim takes on his favourite subjects of religion, politics and sex.
Jim can currently be seen in his Showtime one hour comedy special “Alcoholocaust” which played to record breaking ratings this August. His debut on HBO with “Jim Jefferies: I Swear to God,” was met with rave reviews. Jim’s bold and painfully honest commentary captivated all who tuned in. Jim has also been seen on HBO’s “Down and Dirty with Jim Norton” and he hosted “Live at Gotham” for Comedy Central.
Most recently, Jim has shot a pilot for F/X based on his stand-up. He stars in this show which he also wrote and produced and can be expected to air in 2012. Jim is already working on his next one hour comedy special.
