Sunday, August 29th 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
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!
UPDATE: Due to the current COVID restrictions in Humboldt County, the Arcata Playhouse has regrettably had to make public performance of BOTIE unavailable.
However, we will still be streaming the opera!

- a free link to the live-stream of the August 29, 2 PM performance

We will continue to sell tickets to the streaming until Sept. 3, if you know others who would like to see the opera, tickets to the live-stream and recording are $20, to order on the Dell’Arte website: Tickets to Bird of the Inner Eye
