SOME LIGHT EMERGES artist talk and performance
Presented in partnership with HGOco
In collaboration with Houston Grand Opera (HGO), and in conjunction with the world premiere of SOME LIGHT EMERGES, the Rothko Chapel will present an artist talk and performance. Join composer Laura Kaminsky, librettists Mark Campbell and Kimberly Reed, and others from the creative team in conversation with Rothko Chapel’s Executive Director, David Leslie, to discuss the inspiration and process behind the making of this new chamber opera. Hear never before performed excerpts from the opera by two of the cast members (and HGO Studio Artists), Yelena Dyachek and Zoie Reams. The program will be followed by a reception on the plaza.
Karim Sulayman, cast member of Some Light Emerges, will be on the Plaza from 6-6:45pm to present the performance and social experiment “I trust you,” addressing the recent rise of division, fear, and hatred in our nation. View a past performance here: https://vimeo.com/
