Atelier Courses

Adaptation and Performance with Fiasco Theater

ATL 499 / THR 499 · Spring 2017

S01 · Mondays, 1:30 - 4:20 pm

Instructors: Ben Steinfeld · Noah Brody

This course is centered around the development of Fiasco Theater’s upcoming production of "The Beggar's Opera." The course is for performers, musicians, directors, writers, historians, designers, and more! If “opera” throws you, you should know that the piece is about businessman gangsters (male and female), mercenary prostitutes, beggars (economic inequality,) and love (which is nothing compared to money and status) — and the music explored will be new and contemporary, not old and operatic.
