SOPER: HERE BE SIRENS

Pulitzer Prize finalist, Kate Soper's Here Be Sirens is an opera/theatre work blending music, terrifying noise, screwball comedy, and Aristotelian tragedy to present the mythological sirens as real beings, invested in their own origins and obsessed with the possibility of escape from the tedium of endless irresistible desire. The New Yorker calls the 2014 work "an hilarious, furiously inventive meditation on the siren myth." For more information, click here.
