"Improvement (Don Leaves Linda)" — LAST DAY

(Feb. 7-16) — This newly reconstructed opera by the late Robert Ashley (written in 1985 and first performed in 1991) follows the adventures of its Jewish protagonist Linda, whose travels and romances can be read as attempts at assimilation and cultural cross-pollination, with varying degrees of success and rejection. The metaphor stretches in time from 1492 — the beginning of a European consciousness of America and the expulsion of the Sephardic Jews from Spain — to the late 1940s on the West Coast (representing the future of the United States of America). Densely layered streams of text, lush live vocals, and a minutely structured electronic orchestra combine to present Ashley’s portrait of the American psyche. 

Featuring singers Gelsey Bell, Amirtha Kidambi, Brian McCorkle, Paul Pinto, David Ruder, Aliza Simons and Music Director Tom Hamilton.
