Chamber musicians from San Francisco Opera and Ballet, New Century Chamber Orchestra, and major Bay Area symphonies will perform in Eve, an opera about women's exploitation and liberation. The opera premieres October 28th, 2022 at the Palace of Fine Arts, in collaboration with aligned Bay Area organizations during Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

 

Created by Bolinas composer Andrea Densmore, and her two sons, Eve weaves a compelling personal story. In addition to exquisite chamber music, this multi-genre contemporary work with a cast of over 60 performers includes members of the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir, multiple vocalists, a jazz/blues combo, with aerial, ballet and modern dancers.

This opera is a collection of work: my opus. It is also my story. To be able to create this art, after all that I’ve been through, is the most tangible proof of my actual healing. May it serve to heal others who have been shut down, oppressed, held back, interrupted, abused.

The honest experience of living inside a female body in our society is finally a valid, front-burner subject. I am grateful for those who came before and actively changed our cultural norms in body-positive ways so that I could celebrate the wonder of my own body. I compose from movement and for movement. My composing for these pieces was, at times, actually sourced from imagining, embodying the actual dancers in this show.

For me the most important ingredient for composing is feeling confident that my work is needed and wanted. This magically opens up the boldly creative channels for me. The time is ripe for this subject matter. It is my honor to invite you to join me this October 28th at The Palace of Fine Arts.
