Chamber opera “2 Moon Smile” premieres in Rochester, Friday

Friday, April 7, 7:30 p.m.—ROCHESTER—Heliand Consort and Clogs premiere “2 Moon Smile” chamber opera by Australian composer, Padma Newsome in two performances: Friday, April 7, 7:30 p.m. at Rochester Federated Church, 15 N. Main St., Rochester; and Saturday, April 8, 7:30 p.m. at York Street Meeting House in Lyndon.
An allegory about love, war and healing, “2 Moon Smile” tells the fanciful story of Pink Lycra, sung by soprano Mary Bonhag, a charismatic leader whose prophetic vision draws people to her.
Heliand Consort celebrates its 10th anniversary season with this dramatic new work in which classical and electro-acoustic worlds collide; where folk meets minimalism and aria traditions. Clogs, a renowned new and improvised music ensemble, joins dancers Susannah Keebler and Clare Byrne in the spectacle.
Doors open at 7 p.m. for both shows, which are admission by donation.
