WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Nancy Rhodes, Artistic Director of Encompass New Opera Theatre, in association with Opera Index, presents the NY Premiere of Shaw Sings! Ms. Rhodes will direct the new comic operas with Mara Waldman as conductor. Composer Philip Hagemann has set two of George Bernard Shaw's most inspired plays to music featuring a chamber orchestra of 14 musicians. In the musical farce based on Shaw's Passion, Poison and Petrifaction, we are thrust into his upside-down world of infidelity, murder and intrigue. The Dark Lady of the Sonnets, in a unique twist, we spy the Bard convincing Queen Elizabeth I to establish a National Theatre, a cause very near and dear to George Bernard Shaw and one he promoted to the British Monarchy.
