A once-in-a-lifetime theater experience, formed of two parts divided over two evenings! On the first evening, audiences experience an audacious reimagining of Verdi and Shakespeare in an all-new English poetic treatment by Andrew Albin, featuring the searing images of British visual artist Keith Piper and new musical “sea-interludes” composed and performed by Matthew Evan Taylor.

Audiences return the second evening for a reading of Toni Morrison's shattering and meditative play Desdemona interwoven with the music of the immortal Nina Simone, featuring world-renowned artist Claron McFadden. The work comes to life within a sculpture installation by celebrated visual artist Maya Freelon. Remarkable and multifaceted artist Maribeth Diggle takes the role of Desdemona in both evenings.
