En Masse took place on April 20th, 2013 at Discovery Green in downtown Houston, TX. It was performed over a four hour period, across twelve stations located throughout the park.
En Masse is a site specific performance created by University of Houston Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts Artist in Residence Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR) in collaboration with Marc Bamuthi Joseph and the UH Spirit of Houston Marching Band.
A zoomy new version of the classic opera pits good against evil in a quest to save the daughter of the mysterious Queen of the Night. Secret societies and rituals, trials by fire, birdmen, adventure heroes, enchantment, danger, romance, and some of Mozart's most beloved music add up to an operatic blockbuster.
