CreArt Box welcomes Groupmuse community members back for another Night Out with fresh, inspiring, avant garde programming. This time, CreArt Box founder, Guillermo LaPorta, brings us one of his own exciting productions entitled Opera: Architecture of a Common Man.

This combo opera-ballet-film performance follows the journey of a world-recognized photographer working on a documentary about his own life, aiming to teach others how to be successful. While creating this documentary, he unveils a fascinating retrospective of his life.

Analyzing his relationship with work, family, health, and spirituality. Eventually discovering parts of himself that were buried in his professional ambitions. The main character is split into three performers, an actor on the screen plus 2 alter egos on the stage (a contemporary dancer and an opera baritone).

The music is originally written for soprano, baritone, string quartet, piano, synthesizer, and choir. This piece explores how society encourages us to be exceptional, great, perfect, successful, or unique, exploring the true meaning of success and how someone can find happiness in life by just being a common man.

More information about CreArt Box can be found on their website.

Ticket buyers are directed to pick up their tickets at Will-Call immediately before the performance. Seats are first come, first served.
