Thompson Street Opera Company is collaborating with Pride Films & Plays on the production When Adonis Calls, which will run Fridays through Sundays Nov. 30-Dec. 9.
Fresh from its premiere at Ashville Lyric Opera, When Adonis Calls follows a correspondence between an accomplished author and a younger fan. The opera utilizes an ensemble of a string quartet and a percussionist; the Poet and Muse are sung and acted by two baritones, and physicalized by two dancers to illuminate the complexities of a gay relationship in the 21st century.
The opera stars Chicago favorite Jonathan Wilson as the Poet, and presents the Chicago debut of baritone Nathan James Kistler as the Muse. Pride Films & Plays Artistic Associate Derek Van Barham will direct.
Admission is $15-$30 each; visit whenadoniscalls.brownpapertickets.com/.
