A classical performance for the modern age
Joseph Keckler may have been trained as an operatic bass-baritone, but his style just doesn’t scream Mozart or Verdi to us. His unconventional approach to classical music has landed him with shows everywhere from the New Museum to SXSW. His latest project, I Am An Opera, takes the traditional form but turns it upside down. Trips on hallucinogens or expeditions to the bondage store are all fair game in this charmingly bizarre opera. Best available seating allocated by the venue on arrival. Please arrive on time.
"Exquisite... I am an Opera simultaneously deconstructs and re-animates the operatic form, making it contemporary, relevant, and even urgent… the consummate interdisciplinary performance artist."
