A Week of Radio Opera World Premieres
From March 17-22, Q2 Music presents Experiments in Opera: Radio Operas – six innovative opera miniatures crafted with an "ears only" audience in mind.
Composed by John King, Matthew Welch, Paul Pinto, Aaron Siegel, Jason Cady and Ann Heppermann, and Jonathan Mitchell, the music explores a wide range of stories highlighting the composers’ interests in modern abstraction, science fiction, hallucinations, scientific discoveries and pop culture icons.

Each Radio Opera receives its premiere at 8 pm, and will be available afterwards for on-demand streaming.
