The Wooster Group Goes To The Opera

Up next for the fabulous Wooster Group will be LA DIDONE in which Francisco Cavalli's 1641 opera, La Didone, in which Aeneas, prince of Troy, lands on the shores of Africa after a violent sea storm and falls in love with Dido, queen of Carthage collides with Mario Bava's 1965 cult movie Terrore nello spazio (better know as Planet of the Vampires in the US), the spaceship Argos crashes on the planet Aurora, and its crew becomes locked in a desperate battle with zombies!

The premiere of this new work will be Kaaitheater in Brussels, May 19th - 24th, 2007. No word on when we will see it in NYC.
