LA MAMA in association with Monk Parrots presents
BUM PHILLIPS ALL-AMERICAN OPERA
By Monk Parrots (New York)
Commissioned and produced by Monk Parrots
Libretto by Kirk Lynn | Music by Peter Stopschinski
Concept, Direction, Production Design by Luke Leonard
This world premiere opera celebrates the improbable life of Bum Phillips, a National Football League legend and American icon. Inspired by Phillips’ motivational skills and homespun principles, this epic portrait of Bum Phillips pushes the boundaries of where and for whom opera is staged. This new work from Monk Parrots features composition from Peter Stopschinski and a libretto by Kirk Lynn, both members of the award-winning theatre collective Rude Mechanicals.
