Composer/guitarist John King, critically acclaimed for his buoyant, post-Hendrix, art-funk scores, creates a compelling meditation on the dynamics of power with his experimental, electronic opera, La Belle Captive. Drawing from texts by Alain Robbe-Grillet and poems by women imprisoned during Argentina's 1970s military dictatorship, the work exposes multiple plots with a singular focus: the complex relationship between captor and captive. Box office hours are Tuesday-Saturday 2:00pm-6:00pm
