The last few months of 2013 were a whirlwind. Following our installation in The Water Works abandoned underground Kelly Pool, we began work on a mini-opera staged within the pool. “Tributaries: A Modern Cantata”, was a collaboration with good friend and wildly talented composer Craig Hendrix of The Agave Opera Company. With help from Victoria Prizzia of Habitheque Inc., and countless other artists, musicians and collaborators, the 4 act live performance came together in just under 10 weeks. On December 14th, we filled the pool with 150+ curious Philadelphians, a small, brass heavy orchestra, and 3 amazing vocalists.
We were thrilled to be invited to transform this forgotten-about historic structure into the most atypical of venues. Below are some images of the performance, and press links. Stay tuned for streaming audio and video of the performance!
