A trailer for the opera-in-progress by composer Missy Mazzoli and filmmaker Stephen Taylor, with stage direction by Gia Forakis.
Song From the Uproar tells the story of Isabelle Eberhardt, a turn-of-the-century writer, mystic, explorer, and adventurer who left behind her life in Switzerland to join a Sufi cult in North Africa and to seek adventure, love, and spiritual fulfillment. Tragically, she drowned in the desert during a flash flood at the age of 27, leaving behind only a few photographs and her diaries.
This opera features performances by mezzo-soprano Abigail Fischer and the acclaimed NOW Ensemble. This video was recorded during a workshop performance by Hope Hall and Elihu Rubin. Sound recording by Dan Bora. Costume design by Alixandra Gage Englund.
