Guerilla Opera: Game: the Play—or—Play: the Game
In conclusion of their 10th anniversary season,  Guerilla Opera presents the world-premiere of composer and theater artist Rick Burkhardt’s “Game: the Play—or—Play: the Game.” “Game: the Play—or—Play: the Game” is approximately 70 minutes in duration and sung in English.

Four singer/actors (sopranos Aliana de la Guardia, Jennifer Ashe and Nina Guo, and baritone Brian Church) pair with four instrumentalist/actors (percussionist Mike Williams, saxophonist Phillip Stäudlin, clarinetst Rane Moore and violinist Lilit Hartunian) to depict playing a board game that literally folds out onto the stage with the audience in-the-round. The sound world develops from the actual sounds of gaming—rolling dice, shuffling cards, moving small game pieces, etc.—and extends into those of the musical instruments.  Audience talk-back will directly follow the performances on Thursday, May 25 and Friday, May 26, with members of the cast and creative team. Tickets are $15 for general admission and $10 for senior citizens. Tickets are free for students, as available the day of with a valid ID.
