Don’t miss New Resonance Orchestra’s latest project!
LABOR: Songs for Unmaking a Living
by Tucker Fuller and Megan Levad
Wednesday, April 30 & Thursday, May 1, 2014
8pm at the Marigny Opera House
Two singers and a chamber orchestra bring nine ballads to life in this provocative and engaging new song cycle. LABOR draws on the rich variety of songs in the American popular canon, presenting a nuanced exploration of work and working in the 21st century. Through the voices of nine distinct characters, these songs illuminate the many ways a worker’s integrity or freedom can be compromised by the act of making a living.
TWO PERFORMANCES: Wednesday, April 30 & Thursday, May 1 at 8pm at the Marigny Opera House
