September 21–28, 2019
From the mind of Joseph Keckler
Performed in English and other languages with English supertitles
Part of Festival O19
Joseph Keckler brings his rich voice and vision to this world premiere, which combines death sequences drawn from the canon of tragic opera, along with original narratives and music. Absurd yet affecting, this ensemble performance collage is at once a festive meditation, strange ritual, and morbid medley of epic proportions. Using fragmentation as a poetic strategy, Let Me Die borrows its title from “Lasciatemi morire,” the Monteverdi aria which is itself a fragment—a death song from a lost opera.
Presented in partnership with FringeArts as part of the 2019 Fringe Festival
