Dell’Arte International in collaboration with the Arcata Playhouse, will present the first workshop performances of a new chamber opera “Bird of the Inner Eye,” (BOTIE) August 27-29 at the Playhouse. With libretto by Dell’Arte’s Founding Artistic Director Joan Schirle, music by composer Gina Leishman, and based on the letters of painter Morris Graves. The opera was originally scheduled for June 2020, but postponed due to the pandemic. BOTIE features a local and international cast of singers and musicians, and is supported by a grant from Opera America’s Discovery grants for female composers, and by local donors. Given the changing rules about public performance, we’ll keep you updated about when and how tickets can be found for Playhouse performances. Follow BOTIE on FB!
