About this show

Praised by the Village Voice for its "eye-popping effects, excellent showbiz-savvy performers" and "lusty sensual movement," the rock opera Remember Me is a spectacular collaboration between Parsons Dance Company and the East Village Opera Company. This modern re-telling of a tragic love triangle dazzles with lighting, sets, costumes, multimedia effects, dancers and singers that find company founder David Parsons "entering the realm of pop spectacle with a vengeance." (Village Voice) If you prefer Queen to Puccini, then Remember Me is for you, touching lightly on opera's most popular vocal moments -- including arias from La Bohème, Carmen, Rigoletto and Turandot. And all the most lurid aspects of opera are here -- romance, seduction, revenge and tragic love - placed within the context of Parsons' sexily exuberant dancers. The "rockra" promises a splendid encore: the company's greatest hit, Caught. Gravity-defying dance interacts with strobe lights effects in this triumphant tour-de-force.
