This opera by John Cage is a collage scored for two singers, each singing five arias of their own choosing from the standard opera repertoire. A pianist "accompanies" them by playing six different opera transcriptions. They are joined by a single 78-rpm Victrola, playing six historical opera recordings and a performer playing a pre-recorded tape, plus the use of a radio and a silent television. This performance begins at 8:00 p.m. in the Burchfield Penney Art Center Auditorium, as part of the Second Friday festivities at the art center.
Admission is $15 for the general public, $5 for members and Buffalo State faculty, staff and students.
