Beginning this weekend, UrbanArias presents She, After, an exciting pair of one-woman operatic mono-dramas by composer Daniel Felsenfeld, featuring soprano Emily Pulley.
Like Inscape, UrbanArias is dedicated to commissioning and presenting new works, many by emerging American composers. Based in Arlington, VA, UrbanArias presents short (under 90 minute) and contemporary (written in the last 40 years) operas. Their unique new production is a thought-provoking and amusing take on the imagined lives of two famous literary women, AFTER their moments of notoriety.
Last spring, UrbanArias critically acclaimed production Paul's Case acquainted us with composer Gregory Spears. We were extremely impressed with Spear's work and have commissioned a new work from him that will be performed in March and included on our next album!
Inscape is excited to collaborate with UrbanArias on future productions. In She, After, our principal piano, Tim McReynolds, is featured prominently.
If you love Inscape and new music in the Washington, D.C. area, you will love UrbanArias! Be sure to check them out from November 9-17 at Artisphere!
