Lars Preece, Jerome Síbulo and Nathan Hall work through Act 5 of Unbound: A Contemporary Opera.

August 27 - September 4, "Unbound: A Contemporary Opera" premieres at Denver's Studio Friction. Colorado composer and director Nathan Hall positions "Unbound" as a "multimedia, musical kink show about a gay man’s exploration of sexuality and search for fantasy." Along with librettist Alan Olejniczak, the new work incorporates classical music traditions and intimacy while striving to change audience perceptions of both desire and opera. Curious? Denverite has the full article along with behind the scenes pics, performance previews and more.
