    Unrelenting

     at Italian Consulate of New York

    The NYC Mayor’s Office for International Affairs, Consulate General of Italy in New York, and Magazzino Italian Art are pleased to present an outdoor screening of Francesco Simeti’s video work Unrelenting (2020). The artwork will be projected in largescale on the exterior of the Consulate building, visible on the southwest corner of 69th street and Park Avenue.

    For Homemade, Simeti chose to investigate these themes through a previously unexplored medium. Over the course of two months, he created a series of animations that expose how nature emerged as humans retreated indoors during the pandemic. As we watch intertwined webs of foliage appear from both horizontal and vertical perspectives, we are reminded of our everyday experience of watching nature gradually come into view during the quarantine. His inclusion of music composed by his dear friend and collaborator Chris Cerrone adds an element of magical mystique that mirrors our wonder for nature while simultaneously introducing an eerie and alarming call to action.

    All Wounds Bleed

     on U of M livestream

    The University Opera Theatre showcases two new works—each around 30 minutes in length—in a stripped down performance on the University of Michigan’s North Campus.

    The first opera, ALL WOUNDS BLEED, is a re-telling of the myth of Echo & Narcissus in three scenes and an epilogue, composed by Pulitzer Prize finalist Christopher Cerrone with libretto by Tony Asaro. It features three vocalists—a soprano, a mezzo, and a tenor—as nymph Echo, goddess Hera, and self-adoring Narcissus, respectively.

    The second opera, DAUGHTERS OF THE BLOODY DUKE, is a dark comedic one-act opera written by Jake Runestad, in which Margot, the young daughter of the Bloody Duke of Ravenswood, must choose between love and the demands of her revenge-crazed family. More Info
