Gino Robair: I, Norton — An opera in real-time

“At the request of the citizens of these United States, I, Joshua Norton declare myself Emperor.” So began the proclamation by which Joshua Norton, on September 17, 1859, became Norton I, Emperor of the United States and Protector of Mexico. Dramatically, the work takes place as the Emperor lay dying on a rain-soaked street. At that precise moment, time is suspended and his life’s events pass before his eyes. The result is an opera that is rich in symbolism and metaphor, carrying a political subtext that resonates with current geo-political situations. Presented by Earshot Jazz and Nonsequitur
$15 general; $13 discount
