About the Event

Five Ways to Die is a world premiere opera written and composed by artists in Experiments in Opera’s critically-acclaimed Writers’ Room, a regularly-occurring program for composers and librettists that Experiments in Opera began in 2019. The Writers’ Room challenges the precedent of single authorship and embraces a model where multiple composers and librettists create a large-scale work that embodies the spirit of an inclusive and collaborative community. Prior Writers’ Room works include Sisyphus (2017), Aqua Net & Funyuns (2020) and Everything For Dawn (2022). Five Ways will feature a chamber ensemble of five musicians, a cast of six singers and maximalist aesthetics to investigate poison, plague, and magical portals, and of course, death.
