River Spirits: An abstract fable

April 13-19, 2020

In August of 2018, sopranos Mary Bonhag, Susan Botti, and Lucy Shelton gathered in Yellow Barn’s artist studios and began developing River Spirits, a new work and abstract fable by Ms. Botti. They now return with an ensemble of players from the Folger and 21st Century Consorts, and from Yellow Barn, to focus on the work’s musical foundation, and to begin conversations with set designer Leslie Taylor, as they consider its intended multi-media environment.
