Schauspieldirektor? what's a schauspieldirektor? Sounds like the German word for battery acid or something. But it isn't! It means impresario - someone who puts on opera. And that's what Groupmuse is doing. And the opera is called Schauspieldirektor. Meta.

The space: Pioneer Works, an awesome space in Red Hook with music/ dancing after and food trucks and art everywhere.

The main event: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Showed signs of talent. Wrote some of the greatest operas ever. Written for Emperor Joseph of Austria's living room, Mozart's Der Schauspieldirektor is about a dealing with egotistical singers who have to learn to compromise in order to make art happen. There are two fun ensemble pieces and two world-alteringly beautiful arias set inside short'n'snappy new dialogue we're writing just for the occasion. Our set: an art installation called Living Room Index and Pool. The installation, by Yuri Mansyj, consists of sculptural objects—boards, pipes, mats, tubes, chairs, tables, sections of wall—that take their cues from construction sites, furniture design and architecture. These objects relate to things in our world, but through their aestheticization, material quality, and scale produce a slightly-off or uncanny sensibility.

Hey all, we're so excited to see you tomorrow night. The venue is at 159 Pioneer Street, Red Hook, Brooklyn. Doors will open at 8PM, and we'll start the performance of Der Schauspieldirektor at 8:30. Please feel free to stick around afterwards, celebrate with us, have a few drinks at the donation bar, and enjoy a postlude performance later in the night. We're almost sold out, so if you know anyone who still needs a ticket, tell them to act fast! If you need to transfer your ticket to a friend, feel free - just have them give us your name at the door and we'll check them in.

Also! If you haven't received an emailed ticket confirmation, it's because we don't send them! All you need is an ID and we'll check you off of our list at the door. See you soon!

Hi! It says that all 300 spots are filled, but there is still an option to buy if I click the link. Can we still purchase tickets to this event?


Yes

Ben Miller, over 6 years ago

The event is sold-out online. It won't process your credit card information or charge you for tickets. We'll have an update tomorrow or later tonight about whether or not there's expanded capacity/admission at the door.
