Opera Vision: The Time of Our Singing
4 December @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm AEDT
An event every day that begins at 8:30 pm, repeating until 22 March 2022
Belgian avant-garde jazz pianist and composer Kris Defoort’s new opera is a fascinating symbiosis between jazz and classical music deeply rooted in the now. Inspired by Richard Powers’ great American novel, The Time of Our Singing tells the story of a mixed-race family against the backdrop of racial segregation in the USA. In the world premiere at La Monnaie, Ted Hoffman’s production lets official history and intimate stories collide to explore issues of identity, race and art.
