January 8-13, 2014 at HERE in New York City
UrbanArias is thrilled to take our show on the road! We will present five performances of PAUL’S CASE in New York under the auspices of the PROTOYPE festival which features new operas and music theater.
PAUL’S CASE is the story of a middle-class Pittsburgh boy who has aspirations to something grander; stifled at home and at school, he finds freedom only when ushering at the opera house.
If you missed it in April, this is your chance to see the show of the Washington Post called
“. . . an arresting little piece that communicates its haunting story with clarity and a sense of inevitability,”
and of which the Wall Street Journal said,
“composer Gregory Spears combines minimalism, baroque gestures, and extended vocal techniques into a distinctive and pungent musical language . . . the overall pacing is taut, the nine-piece orchestration vivid and the denouement appropriately wrenching.”
