Video Promo by Eric Graham: WE MIGHT BE STRUCK BY LIGHTNING, Lola, Austin, August 18 - 27, 2017

LOLA’s newest creation, We Might Be Struck By Lightning, is an operatic pastiche following two women on their personal journeys of love, loss, depression, and redemption. We Might Be Struck By Lightning takes the genre of classical “art song”, traditionally presented in a recital setting, and weaves it together with piano, violin, and cello to create a tapestry of storytelling that is further elevated through movement.

Singers Claudia Chapa and Cristina Castro with dancers James Fuller, Mari Akita, Sara Navarrete, and Erica Gionfriddo bring the characters to life. Music direction by Peter Stopschinski with orchestral collaboration from Sonja Larson and Nora Karakousoglou. Lighting by Natalie George, costume design by Emily Cawood, choreography by Rebecca Whitehurst, stage direction and score assemblage by Rebecca Herman.
