Thompson St. Opera

May 10, 12, 17, and 19, 2024

PrideArts, 4139 N. Broadway, Chicago, IL, 60613

Please join us for this double bill of works about queer love and loss. First is the World Premiere of Wet Dirt by Collin Kemeny with libretto by Andrea L. Hart, which follows a couple whose relationship is struggling after a mutual friend’s death. Following an intermission will be our first work in Italian: the US premiere of Il nostro posto nel mondo (Our Place in the World) by Marco Emanuele and Marco Gnaccolini, in which two soulmates find each other in multiple reincarnations across time, gender, and even species. This will also be our first co-production with another storefront opera company! We are delighted to be partnering with New Moon Opera to share Il nostro posto nel mondo with American audiences.
