featuring Dee Beasnael, Lanxing Fu, Lucy Kaminsky, Harmony Stempel

March 23-25, 2019
LPAC’s Rough Draft Festival
When climate events that destroy millions of lives become quotidian, is it the apocalypse yet? When the big-picture problem to which we're all contributing starts to become horribly clear, is it the apocalypse yet? Does this all seem too epic, too dramatic, too over-the-top for a normal conversation? Would an opera be enough? Climate Change: An Opera? breaks open popular, canonical, and epic forms of storytelling to question how we got here and where the hell we're going.
