Julia Holter is a composer, performer, and recording artist based in Los Angeles. She has performed at venues and festivals throughout Europe, North America, Asia, and Australia, and has had pieces commissioned by and/or has performed with ensembles such as the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Stargaze Orchestra.
An operatic staging of Julia Holter’s album “Tragedy”, based on Euripides’ “Hippolytus”, in which the wrath of an angry goddess leads to a series of misunderstandings and deaths. The original recording was inspired by classical imagery—statues and ruins—and was made with the intention of eventually being performed theatrically.
IN THE ARTIST’S WORDS:
“As artists who work across different disciplines—Yelena Zhelezov with a focus on video and performing sculptures, Zoe Aja Moore with a focus on theater and performance, and Julia Holter as a musician —we are excited to work together to realize the vision of Tragedy as an opera. A Residency at NS turns this vision into a reality.”
