Rhymes With Opera expands the repertoire of new vocal music by commissioning and promoting new works, collaborating with a variety of artists, and creating works that forge new connections between music and other disciplines. RWO seeks new audiences for contemporary opera by bringing smaller, more flexible productions to a wide variety of venues, creating meaningful connections between the work, the place where it is performed, and the audience.

In concert with Peter Thoresen, coutertenor; Robert Maril, narrator; and members of the Rhymes With Opera Orchestra, George Lam, co-artistic director and conductor

Program:

George Lam (libretto by John Clum): "She Can Touch You" from Heartbreak Express (2014, world premiere); Ruby Fulton: Lilly Tank (2011); Philip Glass: String Quartet No. 5 (1991); Frederic Rzewski: Coming Together (1971)
