Joseph Keckler - Self-Portrait as an Opera
OBERON Presents, OBERON Shows
Thursday, April 5, 2018 at 8PM
Joseph Keckler
"The sensibility of a magician, a trickster’s dark humor and a formidable musical and literary erudition. Major vocal talent."
The New York Times
Part of the 2017/18 Glowberon Season

Calling on a powerful and versatile voice, Joesph Keckler presents a collection of colorful episodes from his own life—a trip on hallucinogens, and an expedition to the bondage store, for instance—in operatic form, as though they were epic dramas of life and death. He veers into vivid fantasies as well, leading the audience through terrain both humorous and haunting.
