Lady M

Heartbeat Opera
April 20–May 1, 2020

This residency has been canceled to follow University policies that have been put in place in light of new developments related to the coronavirus.

This New York opera company comes to EMPAC at the end of our season to develop a new reordered and reorchestrated version of Giuseppe Verdi’s Macbeth, here renamed Lady M. The company will use their time at EMPAC to collaborate with sound artist and RPI alumna Senem Pirler, creating the supernatural sound of the witches—manipulating their voices through electronic processing.
