In the Penal Colony at Portland Opera July 26 - August 10

Philip Glass’s In the Penal Colony is a chilling thriller and we imagine no-one will do it better than visionary director Jerry Mouawad and conductor Nicholas Fox. A visitor is invited to a penal colony to observe the execution of a prisoner at the hands of a nightmarish machine. The New York Times calls Glass’ piece a “surreal exploration of injustice.” Intimately performed in the round, don’t miss this thrilling evening of theatre at Portland Opera. Jerry and Nicholas share insight into this one of kind production.
