This February Eastman Opera Theatre will reproduce another masterpiece in the intimate setting of the Eastman Opera Studio, Annex 804.

Dancers and singers share the stage in Les Enfants Terribles, the final installment of Philip Glass’ trilogy based on the work of Jean Cocteau. Articulating Cocteau’s belief in the transcendent power of imagination and creativity, Les Enfants is the story of Paul and Lise, two characters so caught up in a world of their own imaginings that they can no longer see a reality beyond their “game”. The singers, along with dancers, alternately portray the action.

The performance will run for 1 hour, 30 minutes without an intermission.
Please ensure to arrive early as late seating will not be possible.

The four performances are:

Thursday, February 1st, 7:30pm
Friday, February 2nd, 7:30pm
Saturday, February 3rd, 7:30pm
Sunday, February 4th, 2:00pm

A pre-performance lecture will be presented 1 hour prior to each performance in the Annex.
