I and my wife love the show. There was a mix of classical music, electronic music with ballet and opera thrown in. It was a hard to describe dance party. Our only problem was the venue itself which let everyone in an hour late with no explanation.

The show was scheduled for 11:00 P.M. and we got there at 10:50. We were left to wait outside on line and at 11:20, when it started puring out, we decided to leave. It was not only a waste of money but also of our time.

“Elements of classical music, dance, and immersive dramatic theater with the aesthetics and attitude of the contemporary nightclub.”  —Boston Globe

Description

Director of Dance: Elizabeth McGuire 

Director of Theatre: Marissa Rae Roberts 

Director of Music: Colin Thurmond 

AcousticaElectronica makes its New York City debut at Le Poisson Rouge, after it’s smash success at Boston’s OBERON, the theatre-club of the American Repertory Theatre, with a unprecedented level of music and spectacle that blends the virtuosity found in the classical concert hall with the infectious energy of the late-night dance club. The best of both worlds: artistic depth and irresistible appeal. It is sexy and classy, sensuous and stoic, irreverent and reverential. 

AcousticaElectronica presents some of the most innovative music from well-established and hot up-and-coming producers and composers. Bach meets a dance club back-beat, Carmen’s habanera meets techno, and Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata blends with trance for a listening experience unlike anything you have ever heard before.  

This ultimate dance party becomes an immersive experience for the audience. Dancers, symphonies, operas, ballets, and live musicians all happen around every inch of the space to keep the audience guessing at every turn. A classical world becomes the technicolor world of the dance club as the audience escapes from their real lives to experience a night of dream, abandon, and ecstasy…
