I FIORETTI IN MUSICA- Opera in Danza is an original Italian Opera that imagines St. Francis of Assisi as a character in modern New York. The libretto and concept by Gian Marco Lo Forte are based on the 14th century book of poems in vulgar Italian, Little Flowers, and includes an original polyphonic score for 5 voices composed by Sasha Zamler-Carhart layered and juxtaposed with electronic live voice processing and music inspired by New York City's street noise composed by Ryan Carter. The intimate setting will include art and projections by visual artist Mark Tambella, choreography by Philip Montana and puppetry and masks made with garbage and salvaged materials by Jane Catherine Shaw and Abby Felder to evoke ancient festivities found in Umbria today.
