Event Details

“Locust” is a one-hour chamber opera that has been performed in the United States and Morocco.

This operatic murder mystery tells the story of the Rocky Mountain locust, an iconic species whose swarms blackened the skies of North America in the 1800s but suddenly disappeared forever at the turn of the twentieth century. In this opera, the ghost of the Rocky Mountain locust (think of Franco Faccio’s “Amleto” based on Shakespeare’s “Hamlet”) haunts a scientist until he can figure out how her kind was driven to extinction.
