Song From the Uproar

REDCAT Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater

631 West 2nd St, Los Angeles, 90012


(OCT 9) REDCAT and L.A. Opera present composer Missy Mazzoli’s Song from The Uproar, a multimedia opera that combines live musical performance and original film. This compelling new work was inspired by the journals of Isabelle Eberhardt (1877-1904), one of the most remarkable women of her era. At the age of 20, she left her life in Switzerland behind for an unfettered existence in the North African desert. Hailed by The New York Times as “a visually and aurally ravishing chamber opera…a captivating multimedia spectacle,” Song from the Uproar immerses the audience in the surreal landscapes of her life: the loss of her family, the thrill of her arrival in Africa and the mystery of her demise.
