About Aida vs. Metropolis
"Death to the machines!" Come and enjoy the 2nd installment of OTO's "Opera vs. Cinema" series, where we pair forgotten silent films with live improvised accompaniment from your favorite operas!
Stick it to the man and show up in overalls to help OTO celebrate the profound connection between activism and art. Occupy your senses with Fritz Lang's 1927 stylized sci-fi classic "Metropolis" accompanied by an entirely improvised and never-to-be-repeated performance by pianist Douglas Schneider and violinist Gregory Ewer. Doug and Greg will be improvising from Giuseppe Verdi's grand and glorious opera "Aida."
Liberate yourself with dystopian drink specials by McMenamins and Ye Ol' Grog such as the "1984," "Soylent Green" and "Logan's Rum." Then team up with friends, flex your grey matter and join us for opera and cinema trivia at 6:30 pm to win prizes generously donated by The Someday Lounge, The Mark Spencer Hotel, and Music Millennium.
BONUS! Educate yourself on Saturday at our public masterclass "The Art of Silent Film Accompaniment" with pianist Douglas Schneider. Doug will work with aspiring improvisers on select scenes from "Metropolis," helping them hone their skills in front of the audience. Special advance combo ticket if you attend both events!
