Event: Nick Hallett in Shana Moulton’s ‘Whispering Pines 10’

This weekend, Nick Hallett, who is previously mentioned in this reader, premieres his first opera at The Kitchen, New York, as part of artist Shana Moulton‘s tenth installment of her ongoing series ‘Whispering Pines‘. Moulton’s surreal epic features the artist’s alter-ego, Cynthia, a naif who navigates a world where psychedelia has catastrophically collapsed into kitsch. Hallett’s new composition is an electronic chamber opera, which draws on pop, extended vocal techniques and features soprano Daisy Press and harpist Shelley Burgon.
