Aging Magician
Composer: Paola Prestini
Librettist: Rinde Eckert
Librettist Bio: RINDE ECKERT is a writer, composer, librettist, musician, performer and director. His Opera / New Music Theatre productions have toured throughout America and to major theater festivals in Europe and Asia. With a virtuosic command of gesture, language, and song, the total theatre artist moves beyond the boundaries of what a 'play,' a 'dance piece,' an 'opera' or 'musical' might be, in the service of grappling with complex issues. Eckert describes many of his characters as "little men with big ideas whose consequences of their hubris are often disastrous." Sometimes tragic and austere, sometimes broadly comedic, entirely grounded by presence, his work is alchemical: moving from rumination and distillation to hard-won illumination, or its lack.
Premiere Date: February 28, 2016
Producing Company: Beth Morrison Projects
Description: Aging Magician is a composite of sonic and visual elements that paint an allegory on time, youth and the peculiar magic of ordinary life.  The performance takes the audience on the journey of a reclusive older man's vibrant last adventure, brought to life by a team of multidisciplinary artists who combine music, theatre, puppetry, instrument making, and scenic design.
