Aani Bourassa, Janie Brokenicky, Calder Craig, Michael Davidson, Dan Moore, and Katelyn Mattson-Levy perform Second Nature, composed in 2015 by rising opera hot-shot Matthew Aucoin. Conducted by Max Holman, this post-apocalyptic tale delves into themes of generational conflict and temptation to explore the unknown. View a full synopsis of the hour-long work here.
