"Hyde Park Salon Series"
Saturday, December 3, 2013
Salons are held at a private residence in Hyde Park, near the University of Chicago campus. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Opera Cabal curates a monthly Salon Series on the South Side of Chicago dedicated to fostering the growth of unusual contemporary performance in its beginning stages. The Salons are a forum for scholars, free thinkers and artists of any definition, both local and countrywide, giving priority to those producing uncommon work that can be difficult to program in conventional settings. Grounded in the University of Chicago tradition of open artistic inquiry, the Salons offer the opportunity to share and critique work in an intimate and rigorous workshop environment. Founded in 2006, the Salons are exclusively not-for-profit, community-based, and open to the public by invitation. Salons are generously hosted by the University of Chicago Stein Freiler Distinguished Service Professor in Physics, Sidney Nagel, and Fermilab Deputy Director, Young-Kee Kim.

"Opera Cabal presents ACME in Haas-Balter combo project!"
In June 2014, Opera Cabal presents the American Contemporary Music Ensemble in the North American premiere of Georg Friedrich Haas's haunting monodrama, "ATTHIS," conducted by Peyman Farzinpour, former director of new music at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and conductor-in-residence with Opera Cabal, and Emmy Award-winning director, Habib Azar. Azar and Farzinpour conjure a musical mise-en-scene of subtle but shimmering otherworldliness. Haas shares the stage with Guggenheim Fellow and Chicago-based composer, Marcos Balter, in three never-before staged works featuring "beautiful music of a higher order," executed by celebrated violist Nadia Sirota, with ethereal visualizations by stage director and Opera Cabal Executive and Artistic Director, Majel Connery.
