The Santa Fe Opera Spring Tour Program will present Avastar, an original work written especially for the tour by Pavitt and stage director Kathleen Clawson, to engage students in the world of opera using contemporary themes.
Avastar, a 35-minute piece, is an original story in word and song which peers into the lives of Sara and Josh, who in the virtual world, as contestants Estrella and Supernova, have entered an on-line singing contest. Who will win the competition? And in doing so will they lose out on love?
This theatrical piece incorporates familiar musical works from opera, Broadway, and the world of popular music.
Admission is free for this 45 minute performance. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors open 30 minutes before each performance.
