Hoods is an evening-length chamber opera based on Euripides’ Hekabe and Red Riding Hood, parallel stories of women in extremis. Setting myth and fairytale in the context of late empire and perpetual war, the opera explores themes of violence, gender, and metamorphosis. Three singers each play multiple roles from two stories of women and beasts transforming into one another. Helicopter and animal recordings harmonize with live chamber music. 
Featuring sopranos Malesha Jessie, Stephanie Aston, Jessica Aszodi, and conductor Stephen Lewis
Ensemble:  Michael Matsuno, Samuel Dunscombe, Nicolee Kuester, Ryan Nestor, Judith Hamann, Kyle Motl, and Colin Zyskowski, sound
