UNTITLED (INSPIRED BY FILM STILLS) | FERUS FESTIVAL
Untitled (inspired by Film Stills) is a series of four operatic monodramas exploring the stages of transformation and identity in a woman’s life. Inspired by iconic photographs from Cindy Sherman’s Untitled Film Stills (1977–80), the piece is a study of four women, each confronting a critical choice that determines the course of their lives. In this workshop performance, mezzo-soprano Eve Gigliotti performs new music by Ellen Reid and Paola Prestini. The afternoon also features excerpts by Nico Muhly and Missy Mazzoli, followed by a conversation with the collaborators, offering insight into the process of creating this new chamber opera work.
