Workshop: Friday after Friday: New York City, NY

FRIDAY AFTER FRIDAY is a one-act collage chamber opera amplifying the voices of Syrian women trapped by the ongoing war. An all-female ensemble plays a multitude of characters conveying sisterhood and solidarity in the face of unspeakable horrors. The libretto draws from numerous sources: memoirs of native Syrian and Western-born female embedded journalists, documentaries, and interviews with a variety of Syrian citizens. Short vignettes of narratives, illuminating a range of political and personal perspectives, chart the role of women as an active galvanized force within the conflict.

libretto by Rachel J. Peters

music by Leanna Kirchoff
