DEEP INTO THE DARKNESS PEERING…
A NIGHT OF EDGAR A. POE AND PHILIP GLASS
COT AT UNCOMMON GROUND, NOVEMBER 11TH AT 8 PM
Chicago, IL (Oct. 31st, 2012) – On the evening of Sunday, November 11th, peer deep into the darkness with Chicago Opera Theater (COT) as they host a deliciously eerie night of Edgar Allan Poe and Philip Glass performances at Chicago’s popular Uncommon Ground on Clark Street. The one-night engagement will be the first in a series of events in anticipation of General Director Andreas Mitisek’s inaugural 2013 season – POWER OF LOVE, LOVE OF POWER.
“Just like the artists and designers, the audience is a crucial part of every production,” said Mitisek. “We want to give our audiences new ways to broaden their experiences and explore the themes of our operas before opening night.”
A collaboration with Uncommon Ground and Chicago’s LifeLine Theater, Deep into Darkness Peering… will be an opportunity for a first glimpse into what COT’s 2013 season has to offer. The evening’s program will consist of a selection from Philip Glass’ “The Fall of the House of Usher” – opening at the Harris Theater in Millennium Park on February 23rd - performed by COT artists Leila Bowie, Scott Brunscheen, and Adam Hendrickson accompanied by Mitisek himself. Guests will also be treated to dramatic readings of Poe favorites – including “The Raven” and “The Cask of Amontillado” by actors from Chicago’s LifeLine Theater.
Space for this not-to-be-missed event is limited. Deep into the Darkness Peering… will take place at Uncommon Ground at 3800 North Clark Street in Chicago’s Lakeview Neighborhood at 8:00 pm. Tickets are $15; reservations can be made ahead of time by calling 773.929.3680, or can be purchased at the door.
