Angel's Bone follows the plight of two fallen angels whose nostalgia for earthly delights finds them far from heaven—and victims of human trafficking. The story is told through composer Du Yun's eclectic music: part chamber music, theatre, pop music, opera, cabaret, and involving visual arts and noise, forming a harmonious and moving piece. The presentation is a co-production of Trinity Wall Street and the Prototype Festival, the annual festival of visionary opera-theatre and music-theatre works by pioneering artists from New York and around the world.
Tickets are $15. For more information, visit prototypefestival.org.
