Two new American operatic musical adaptations from classical works, Seymour Barab’s operatic parody Out The Window based upon Georges Feydeux’s farce “Par La Fenetre;” and Rappaccini’s Daughter, based on Nathaniel Hawthorne’s gothic short story, with libretto by Linsey Abrams and music by Michael Cohen. Out The Window is a one act comic opera set in the late 1950’s/60’s ‘Mad Men’ era. Rappaccini’s Daughter, from the story by Nathaniel Hawthorne, is a gripping Gothic tale set in medieval Italy.
In "Out The Window" when a willful wife and hapless husband who don’t happen to be married to each other get together to combat a scourge of jealously, will the cure turn out to be worse than the disease? Or, will love prevail? Out The Window stars Lauren Hoffmeier and James Parks.
Rappaccini’s Daughter, a musical tale
Rappaccini’s Daughter, from the story by Nathaniel Hawthorne, is a gripping Gothic tale set in medieval Italy. Two young lovers with their dreams of a shared future, become the victims of the brilliant Dr. Rappaccini, intent on changing the very laws of nature. No one is safe from his scientific experiments, not even his own daughter–and no one can stop him except, perhaps, for Professor Baglioni, an unheralded doctor committed to healing and humanity. The evil secret lies in a garden.
Rappaccini’s Daughter stars Samantha Britt, William Broderick*, Darcy Dunn, Martin Fisher, and Douglas McDonnell with Michelle Lamb, Bryan Ernesto Menjivar, Michelle West, Masami Ishibashi, Amanda Yachechak, and Gloria Makino*.*Member, Actors' Equity Association. AEA Showcase.
