Wild Dogs libretto taking shape at The Post at 750
From July 7-9, 2015, Music on Main and black bachx will host a Wild Dogs libretto workshop at The Post at 750. A new contemporary one-act chamber opera based on author Helen Humphreys‘ novel of the same name, with music by Anna Pidgorna, libretto by Val Brandt, and dramaturgy by Ann Hodges, Wild Dogs explores our innate wildness and the tug we experience between love’s wild power and our desire to domesticate it. Six strangers gather each evening at the edge of a field to call their dogs that have joined a feral pack living in the wood. Frustrated by the groups unwillingness to chase after the dogs, Lily, a child-like young woman dares to enter the wood alone. This workshop is not open to the public.
