JOHN CAGE'S EUROPERA 5
Friday, October 12 at 8 pm, part of M&T Second Fridays at the Burchfield Penney

Europera 5 (1991) was John Cage's last and most portable opera. It is a collage scored for two singers, each singing five arias of their own choosing from the standard opera repertoire. A pianist "accompanies" them by playing six different opera transcriptions. They are joined by a single 78-rpm victrola player, playing six historical opera recordings and a performer playing a pre-recorded tape, plus the use of a radio and a silent television.

This performance features Martha Herr (soprano), Tom Kostusiak (lighting), Don Metz (Truckera tape), Amy Williams (piano), Jan Williams (Victrola-78-rpm), and Robert Zimmerman (tenor).

Tickets: $5 for Burchfield Penney members; $15 for "not-yet" members. Buy online at www.BurchfieldPenney.org or call 716-878-6011 during gallery hours. Join today at www.BurchfieldPenney.org.
