Nov 8 & 10
La Jetée is an operatic adaptation of the classic movie by Chris Marker which has inspired countless artists, including Terry Gilliam in Twelve Monkeys.
A man is sent back and forth in time by pseudo-scientific experimenters to find a solution to the world’s fate after the devastation of a world war.
He is haunted by his memories and enthralled with a woman from the past with whom he’d like to have a future. But the past isn’t so easy to escape.
This concert production by Access Contemporary Music in collaboration with Chicago Fringe Opera and Lux Cantorum is 80 minutes.
Music by Seth Boustead
Libretto by J. Robert Lennon
Directed by George Cederquist
Music Direction by Catherine O’Shaughnessy
