DIVIDE LIGHT


  • Dixon Place 161A Chrystie Street New York, NY, 10002 United States (map)

New Camerata Opera presents the New York premiere of DIVIDE LIGHT! Barbara is thrilled to be a part of this dynamic ensemble cast.  

Lesley Dill, one of the most prominent American artists working at the intersection of language, performance and fine art, has paired with composer Richard Marriott, Artistic Director and Founder of the acclaimed Clubfoot Orchestra, to create DIVIDE LIGHT - a new opera based on the text of Emily Dickinson. 

With lavish costumes and striking projections, Dill says that DIVIDE LIGHT β€œis a story of the journey of the heart and soul. The story of the music, costumes, and video projections follow an arc of emotional metaphor: from Vulnerability, to Anguish, to Thoughtfulness, to Loneliness and Death, to Exultation, Exhilaration, Ecstasy and Immensity.”

Performances are 4/26 & 4/28 at 8pm, 4/29 at 3pm. Purchase tickets here.
