I, Object: An Opera Double Bill

Open Rehearsal (4pm); Panel Discussion (6pm); Performance (8pm)

The Ligeti Quartet, along with other City Music Foundation artists, will perform in this double bill of operas by Michael Nyman and Kate Whitley.

Whitley’s Unknown Position was inspired by Erika Eiffel, who famously married the Eiffel Tower in a real life example of object sexuality or objectophila. In the libretto, by Emma Hogan, the woman portrayed falls in love with a chair.
