Long Beach Opera presents Tell Tale Heart/ VanGogh
Expo Art Center
4321 Atlantic Ave.
Long Beach, CA
Delirious. Manic. Damned. This double-bill features a boastful murderer and a self-condemned artist. Stewart Copeland, drummer/founder of the rock band The Police, elevates Poe's story of a meticulous murderer betrayed by his own paranoia. Michael Gordon, Bang on a Can co-founder, dives into the restless soul of the brilliant painter Van Gogh, revealing his world through the raw emotions of his personal letters. Both operas feature music at the edge of rock, jazz, and classical modernism.
Pre-Opera talk starts 1 hour before the performance.
