Thursday, September 19, 2019
7 - 8 p.m.
Hatch Recital Hall, Eastman East Wing
Based on a ballet by Cole Porter, TableTopOpera’s "Within the Quota" looks at 100 years of U.S. immigration policy. The chamber group reworks a transcription of Porter’s score by William Bolcom and Richard Rodney Bennett and – in collaboration with George Eastman Museum – accompanies it with an array of historical and contemporary images and film clips. The ensemble has previously created multi-media projects with noted comic-book artist P. Craig Russell, photojournalist Paolo Pellegrin, and film composer Jeff Beal.
Sponsored by the Eastman School of Music, the Religion and Classics Department, and the Center for Jewish Studies.
