Raising the dead isn't free, and we need your help to make this show come alive!
For our inaugural production, WholeTone Opera has a vision for a uniquely morbid Valentine’s Day experience: La Zombiata by Jillian Flexner, a brilliant new comedic opera in one act based loosely on Verdi’s La Traviata.
WTO's mission for this production is to immerse the audience in a romantic dystopia filled with brain noshing, ballroom dancing zombies. Our story begins in a Parisian penthouse infested an undead hoard lead by Xenobia, huntress of humans. As the minions mingle at a bloody ballroom, romantically inclined Christolpho meets the ravenous-yet-rapturous Philonia. Suddenly all-too-human emotions come into play, leading to chaos, comedy, and a splash-zone-worthy soiree.
WholeTone Opera seeks to highlight female composers and artists. We hope to join forces with other local opera companies in the process of revitalizing Boston’s opera community, offering alternative productions with fresh, gripping performances. We rehearse in Somerville at WholeTone Studios near Davis Square.
