Shadow Theatre Opera: It’s ALIVE!

FACING WEST: A SHADOW THEATER OPERA will come alive in SUMMER 2014 as a collaboration between opera singer William Sauerland and Artists Lydia Greer & Jessica Eastburn in the San Francisco Bay Area. Operating on an intimate scale with live chamber music, a small shadow puppet theatre will be lit up with layered and fantastical art work depicting scenes from California history, ecology and western expansion. Look for Walt Whitman flying euphorically above the old west! These performances will be absolutely unique and akin to a live graphic novel synchronized with live musical arrangements. We hope to create an intimate atmosphere with a small screen, live opera/chamber music/sound and a salon style audience. Stay tuned!
