  • National Sawdust

Doors at 9 PM
Advance $29 | At the Door $34

Music and concept by: Whitney George and Daniel Felsenfeld

Based loosely on the short story Gamiani, attributed to Alfred de Musset

Whitney George (Narrator/Conductor)
Joy Jones (The Baron)
Heather Michele Meyer (Countess Gamiani)
Sara Noble (The Maid)
And members of The Curiosity Cabinet

Opera on Tap and The Curiosity Cabinet present an evening of tantalizing voyeurism in a surrealist retelling of the shockingly erotic and blisteringly sacrilegious 1833 short story Gamiani, with original music and concept design by Daniel Felsenfeld and Whitney George. The Baron secretly watches the stunning Italian countess Gamiani as she seduces and bewitches another woman. When his voyeurism is revealed, the steamy duo becomes a trio of imaginative erotic storytelling, in three vignettes which appeal to the senses. Prepare to be lured into a world of pleasure…
