Country opera performed by the award-winning American ensemble Nature Theater of Oklahoma
In December, the Prague Crossroads will bring the very first opera by the legendary New York ensemble Nature Theater of Oklahoma. Burt Turrido: An Opera will be performed on Sunday the 5th and Monday the 6th of December from 6 p.m. at the New Stage of the National Theatre. The directing duo Kelly Copper and Pavol Liska boldly analyses traditional structures and forms of the opera genre in order to put them into a new shape – with a great deal of humour. With their distinctive style, they tell a story of a castaway and an isolated society that saved him. The audience can look forward to a catastrophic storm, an immaculate conception, a mock execution, an alien invasion, a spectacular abduction – and this opera won‘t be over until finally somebody is impaled on a narwhal tusk!
