Opera has an enormous capacity to convey the human experience, and Trinity Wall Street is pleased to bring that energy to its audiences through partnerships with the Prototype Festival and Opera America in the 2015-16 season:

Angel's Bone (World Premiere)
January 6, 10, 12, 13, 15, and 16, 2016, at 7pm
January 9 and 17, 2016, at 3pm

Angel's Bone is a world premiere work of opera-theatre that follows the plight of two angels mysteriously come to Earth who are found, sheltered, manipulated, and imprisoned by a pair of mortals bent on worldly prosperity at all costs. The opera is a collaboration between Du Yun and Royce Vavrek—two of the most compelling young artists working in the field today—and is directed by multidisciplinary rising star Michael McQuilken. The work is scored for four soloists—coming disparately from the operatic, punk, folk, and musical theatre worlds—plus a chorus, electronics, and NOVUS NY under the music direction of Julian Wachner. Angel's Bone melds chamber music, theatre, pop music, spoken word, opera, cabaret, and electronics, exploring the dark effects and motivations behind modern-day slavery and the trafficking industry.
