The Center for Contemporary Opera in cooperation with Urbanvessel (Canada) presents the world premiere of Sweat, an a cappella opera by New Zealand-Canadian composer Juliet Palmer and librettist Anna Chatterton.
Sweat is a kaleidoscope of characters and stories collected from factories around the world. The work offers a window into the lives of the unseen millions who work to clothe us and the high-flying designers whose fantasies feed the fashion industry.
Featuring Jacqueline Horner Kwiatek, Larissa Koniuk, Shabnam Kalbasi, Eric McKeever, and Patrick McNally in the title roles. Conducted by Lidiya Yankovskaya and directed by Giselle Ty.
