Details

Boston-based contemporary duo Transient Canvas features Amy Advocat on bass clarinet and Marion, Ohio native Matt Sharrock on marimba. Accompanied by Boston soprano duo Peridot Duo, Transient Canvas will perform the Midwest Premiere of their new opera Exposure by composer Daniel Felsenfeld and librettist/director Bea Goodwin. The opera was commissioned and developed with support from The Boston Foundation. A modern adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s The Pursuit of the Well Beloved, Exposure is an examination of a photographer’s power over the media’s portrayal of “the perfect woman” and the pressure that depiction puts on a modern woman following the outcome of a series of a female model’s portrait sessions.
