The Irondale Ensemble Project is as close as we come these days to the Elizabethan acting companies that once presented Shakespeare’s plays to the Earl of Leicester, Sir Francis Drake and the Virgin Queen of England. ...What is on offer is the miracle of the word made flesh. I wish you joy in it.” —Lewis Lapham, editor of Lapham’s Quarterly

The Irondale Center presents Issue Project Room

Vidas Perfectas

December 15 - 17

Written by Robert Ashley. Directed by Alex Waterman.
A comic opera about reincarnation, Vidas Perfectas challenges the ways in which we perceive the relationship between language and music. This unique presentation, sung entirely in Spanish, mixes chanting and storytelling, creating a common language where both English and Spanish are mutually understood. Three of the seven episodes of this wonderfully innovative ‘television opera’ will be performed.
