Paola Prestini Presents a Workshop Performance of Oceanic Verses at Governors Island

Building 110: LMCC’s Arts Center at Governors Island
Dates & Times
Friday, October 28, 2011, 3:30–5:30PM

Oceanic Verses by composer-in-residence Paola Prestini follows four separate story lines as a sailor (folksinger Claudio Prima) on the sea sails between ports; a Queen (improviser Helga Davis) views the Earth from her isolated mountain; a mother (soprano Hila Plitmann) prepares her daughter for a wedding, and a revolutionary soldier (Chris Burchett) provides a work song for the laborers. The lives of all come together by the end of the opera. Oceanic Verses musically paints a picture of Italy as it once was, a cross section of cultures expressed through song.

In this performance workshop Singer Helga Davis works with film by Ali Hossaini to create a multi-layered performance in relation to the film.

(Free ferry to Governors Island departs from the Battery Maritime Building, 10 South Street, Manhattan at 3:15PM.)
