West Coast Premiere of JACKIE O!
Feb. 28, Mar. 6, 13 7:30 pm
College of Marin’s performing arts department presents the West Coast Premier of Jackie O! A ninety-minute chamber opera in two acts composed by Michael Daughtery to a libretto by Wayne Koestenbaum. The production will be directed by James Dunn, with musical direction by Paul Smith, and choreography by Sandra Tanner.
Jackie O is a musical happening that takes us back to a 1960s fantasy gathering at Andy Warhol's New York Studio, The Factory, where we learn more about Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis through the imagined eyes of Elizabeth Taylor, Princess Grace, Maria Callas and others.
"The most musically satisfying current-events opera since Nixon in China"
