Innova

Innova is an ecstatically urban, three-hour epic opera for the 21st century. With text collaged from gangster films, political manifestos, and plagiarized performance art, five vocalists sift through a baroque landscape of objects and mirrors triggering a barrage of action, live video and sound. Performed in English as well as Turkish, German, French, Spanish, Mandarin and Hebrew, with English supertitles.
