Multi-disciplinary stage company Opera Erratica and the Classical Music Consort want you to have a CRAZY night this Thursday. How, you ask? By bringing together an awesome DJ, Vaneska , a one-man band, Golden Girls , and Handel’s Gloria at Gallery TPW, and we predict it will be as surreal and amazing as it sounds. Video projections will interact with the music, creating a multimedia sensory overload. Listening to Gloria makes us think of swimming in a placid lagoon-and mixing that with a techno beat seems like an intriguing proposal. So imagine this-Handel conducting an orchestra on a beach, while Vaneska (maybe she’s a mermaid in this scenario…or something) spins alongside, and Matthew Vlahovich of Golden Girls is playing on a yacht, Duran-Duran-in-Rio style. Opera’s not just for snooty old ladies with wee opera glasses and creepy gloves anymore-although now that we think about it, both those accessories would look pretty cool with what we’re planning on wearing.
Thursday, July 9th. Gallery TPW, 56 Ossington Ave. 8:30 pm. $10.
