A comic opera with its heart on its sleeve

Featuring the San Francisco Opera Center’s prestigious 2012 Adler Fellows. Two strangers make eyes at a bus stop, but both are too buried in their own emotional baggage to do anything more than say hello. This dark-hued comedic rhapsody moves through a missed connection and dives into a wild fantasia of memories: from clumsy sexual exploration to full blown commitment, bloodthirsty fights to tender acknowledgments.  It’s a surreal take on a timeless tale that we all know by heart.

LOVE/HATE was co-commissioned by ODC Theater, American Opera Projects, and Music Without Walls.

LOVE/HATE was developed by American Opera Projects with the participation of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Additional support was provided by the Zellerbach Family Foundation.

Below, check out three tracks from Love / Hate. Recorded in 2010, the recordings feature Marnie Breckenridge (Soprano), Jill Grove (Mezzo Soprano), Thomas Glenn (Tenor), Brian Leerhuber (Baritone), and Jack Perla and Hadley McCarroll on Piano. The demos were recorded & mixed by Leslie Ann Jones at Skywalker Sound. ©2010 by Jack Perla & Rob Bailis, all rights reserved.
