To commemorate both its own 60th anniversary and the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, the Santa Fe Opera commissioned a new work from composer Joseph Illick, with a libretto by Andrea Fellows Walters. Mixing Shakespeare and sci-fi, UnShakeable travels twenty-five years into the future after a pandemic called “Erasure” has corroded people’s memories. Will Shakespearean actors, as well as former lovers Wyatt and Meridian, reconnect and restore their bond? Hear selections performed by baritone Samuel Schultz, soprano Jacquelyn Stucker, and Joseph Illick.
FREE in the New Mexico History Museum auditorium.
