El Gallo: opera for actors

April 30, 2011 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


A music director and five singers push themselves to the limits for a music competition in Mexico City’s Teatro de Ciertos Habitantes’ El Gallo: opera for actors. The characters in this engrossing experimental theater find themselves teetering between insanity and euphoria as they work through their deepest inhibitions. Sung entirely in a made-up language, El Gallo features a score and libretto by British composer, Paul Barker who conducts the music, performed live by Chicago’s MAVerick Ensemble. The U.S. premiere of El Gallo is presented by the MCA Stage April 27 – May 1, 2011, as part of the MCA Global Stage series
