“Travel into the past and future with a double feature of Chamber Opera films, presented by The Aviva Players.

The films in the double feature are “Villa Diodati” a screen version of Mira J. Spektor’s opera about Mary Shelley and the origins of her Frankenstein story, and “Libertaria: the Virtual Opera” by Sabrina Pena Young, a futuristic animated tale that may be the world’s first original machinima opera and is certainly one of the few animated comic book operas.

The evening is the second part of the Aviva Players’ 40th Anniversary Series to be presented this fall at Opera America. The three-part series also includes “Songs, Piano Rags & Chamber Music by Women Composers, including the Piano Trio by Fanny Mendelssohn” October 16 and “That Certain Age: Short Operas about Aging with Grace & Humor” December 1. For info on these other concerts, see: http://www.jsnyc.com/season/aviva.htm.”
