Modulation Modulation

January 8 – February 28

A User-Led Digital Experience

A groundbreaking exploration of opera and theater adapting to a new interactive format. Now extended to Feb. 28.

Presented in collaboration with the Prototype Festival, Modulation is a groundbreaking exploration of opera and theater adapting to a new format. Audience members are in control as they navigate through a landscape of new musical pieces—each with its own visual component—exploring the strands that weave together our lives over this past tumultuous and revelatory year. With themes of isolation, identity and fear, with the connection of breath, the experience brings together 13 of the most provocative and diverse voices in the contemporary music idiom.

The voices of these extraordinary artists show us the irrepressible power of music to provide comfort and instigate contemplation of ourselves, our art, our world. An electrifying auditory and visual journey of new creations awaits.

Get access for Modulation for $25 per viewing household below.  Once you get access, you will be able to access the digital experience until February 28, 2021 at 8:59pm
