An elder woman cooks soup for her husband, as she expounds on her salty life (trapped in a loveless and abusive marriage) and contemplates a way out. An operatic monologue for soprano and electronics.
Guerilla Opera is a contemporary opera ensemble that develops new experimental works written specifically for their ensemble of artists. The Guerillas champion cutting-edge music, immerse audiences in profound experiences, and eschew antiquated and stereotypical traditions of the art form of opera in order to examine stories through culturally focused and contemporary lenses. Their vision is to generate a unique body of work that ferociously confronts the status quo and to be a model for creative authenticity and DEIA, and to inspire, influence and amplify emerging generations of artists. https://guerillaopera.org
