Enchantress/Bombay Rickey Meets the Psychology of Desire
ENCHANTRESS is a 20 minute opera about Ada Lovelace, the inventor of the first computer, originally written under the auspices of American Lyric Theater’s Composer/Librettist Development Program.
Praised as “a true treat for the adventurous ear” (TimeOut NY), BOMBAY RICKEY is a five-piece band with a unique sound evocative of 1960s movie soundscapes. The group plays both covers and original music that borrow equally from the worlds of surf rock, cumbia, spaghetti-Western, and Bollywood, balanced out with soaring operatic vocals.
Performance begins at 8 p.m.
