Long Beach Opera presents Tell Tale Heart/ Van Gogh

Saturday, May 18, 2013 2:00p
Expo Art Center Long Beach, CA

Delirious.Damned.This double-bill features a boastful murderer and a self-condemned artist. Stewart Copeland, drummer/founder of the rock band The Police, elevates Poe's story of a meticulous murderer betrayed by his paranoia. Michael Gordon dives into the restless soul of the brilliant painter Van Gogh, revealing his world through the raw emotions of his personal letters. Both operas feature music at the edge of rock jazz & classical modernism.

PreOpera talk starts 1 hour before performance.
