La Comédie de la Mort
MUSIC | SPOKEN WORD | PHOTOGRAPHY
POLYMATH: La comédie de la Mort is a new interdisciplinary performance installation exploring the concept of Death as the apex Renaissance man. The program embraces the intersection of French expressionism and the queering of 20th-Century horror and features two world premieres of song cycles, prose readings, and a photography exhibit, all created by NYC-based queer artists, presented alongside repertory art songs composed by Henri Duparc and Hector Berlioz.
Jordan Rutter-Covatto, countertenor, Sydney Anderson, soprano, and Mila Henry, piano, will perform:
“L'invitation au voyage“
“Au pays où se fait la guerre“
“La vague et la cloche”
“Le spectre de la Rose”
