More on ENA ensemble and the Serial Opera Project
ENA Ensemble’s new Serial Opera project is a multi-month performance of a new chamber opera. Each month, the next scene will be premiered, along with solo and chamber music performances by ENA Ensemble’s players. The opera, with a premise by the award-winning author and librettist Aleksandar Hut-Kono, follows the drama, comedy, and terror of people stuck in an elevator. Each following month, the scene will feature a new librettist/composer team, as well as new instrumentation and singers. Doris & Jenny is the final installment in ENA’s Serial Opera project.
