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.
