AUDITION: NYC ACTORS, DANCERS AND OPERA SINGERS
IBOC invites actors, dancers and opera singers for the audition of ASYLUM, an immersive operatic theater performance presented by International Brazilian Opera Company, with music composed by João MacDowell, conceived and directed by Regina Miranda, from an original idea by C.R. Morgan.
Inspired by “The Alienist” – a short-story written in 1881 by Brazilian author Machado de Assis – the performance portrays the life in a 19th century asylum and offers a closer look into society’s forms of control of deviations from the norm.
