Whispering Pines 10: An Opera by Shana Moulton and Nick Hallett
Date: Saturday, January 8th 2011Sunday, January 9th 2011
Venue: New Museum235 Bowery
Admission: $15

Moulton and Hallett’s opera received rave reviews when it was at The Kitchen last spring; if you missed it then, this is your chance. Moulton, as her alter-ego Cynthia, seeks both wellness and control, but is beset on all sides by pop and kitsch. The dreamy, surreal struggle that results manages to stay playful and clever throughout. Meanwhile, Moulton’s interactive video and Hallett’s music impress in their own rights. Two showings, Saturday and Sunday at 4pm.
