The pasticcio opera Amor & Psyche mixes elements of vaudeville, opera seria, slapstick and tableau vivant into a subtle and witty parody of baroque opera in all its gender-crossing over-the-topness. Drawn from the baroque obsession with Antiquity, the story depicts the myth of Cupid, god of love, and his marriage to the mortal princess Psyche. The piece was constructed by overlaying the music of thirteen composers spanning two hundred years onto the tale. Vaudeville-style placards denote scene changes and provide additional background. Staged and Costumed. Tickets available at the door or through Brown Paper Tickets.
