Project Summary
This opera is a large-scale production for construction cranes and three ensembles. The work has been commissioned by the Borealis Festival in Bergen, Norway, and will be premiered in March 2018. This opera is a dual commentary on the intense socio-economic divide in the US, and the environmental complexities of human progress.
