Rhymes With Opera presents Adam Matlock’s new sci-fi opera Red Giant - a compelling chamber opera that tells the story of three people who are lost in space, and struggling with the aftermath of humanity as their former home planet becomes uninhabitable. As a prelude to Red Giant, Rhymes With Opera will also present the New York premieres of Ruby Fulton’s flowing more freely and George Lam’s Such Sweet Sorrow.
Stage director Laine Rettmer (The Impossible She, Rumpelstiltskin) returns to create this new production for RWO, featuring RWO ensemble members Elisabeth Halliday-Quan, Bonnie Lander, and Robert Maril.
