No.9: David Ogborn

No.9: David Ogborn

Ogborn's 'Opera on the Rocks' was a surprise hit at this year's Toronto Fringe Festival. A darkly comic collaboration between one composer, four librettists, and four singers, this work strips away the conventional barriers between audience and performer, offering the possibility of engaging, daring, and artistically relevant chamber opera - without the pompous trappings usually associated with the genre. David Ogborn discusses how this project came about, its technical and personal demands, and how it articulates his social and artistic role as a composer.
