Chip says: I have been directing the West Coast Premier of "Admeto" with BASOTI at the SF Conservatory of Music. "Admeto" is an opera by G.F. Handel; written basically to pit two rivals against each other ... think Angelina Jolie v. Jennifer Anniston (if Brad Pitt was a countertenor). The story is based on a play by Euripides. The opera will be told Lagaan-style (riffing on the 2001 Bollywood film "Lagaan").
With a chamber orchestra conducted by Sam Emanuel with some choreographic touches by the incomparable Travis Rowland, it's baroque opera meets bhangra.
