Description Singer and composer Shara Worden partners with writer/director/designer Andrew Ondrejcak to create this contemporary opera for five singers and a baroque chamber ensemble. YOU US WE ALL is inspired by the 17th-century court masques, with characters, lyrics, music, costumes, sets, and staging all fractured through a contemporary lens. The explicitly allegorical characters—Death, Hope, Virtue, and Love—are thrust into our world, where they negotiate mundane everyday lives: going to the gym, obsessing over celebrities, fantasizing the life-that-could-be, etc—until Time comes along and tears everything away.
