The Bwak Choir

During the first The Materia Collective I arranged “Waltz de Chocobo” for a fictional group of puppet chickens. We called them “The Bwak Choir” and soon demand grew for more! We made a teaser music video, then a real full music video, followed by more video game music arrangements. The Bwak Choir has a mind of its own now, and therefore they have a website, a Twitter, and a Facebook presence:)

Don Giovanni the Bram Stoker Dracula Edition

Mozart’s classic opera Don Giovanni is coming to Undercroft Opera, but with a vampire twist! I worked hard for two months with Liz Rishel, Michael Greenstein, Gwendolyn R. Schmidt and Mary Beth Sederburg crafting a new libretto based on the story and characters from Bram Stoker’s Dracula! In addition to helping write the show, I am also covering the role of “Zerlina” (aka. “Lucy” from the book) and playing one of the “Three Vampire Brides”.  WORLD PREMIERE of our new libretto will be May 26th-29th at the Antonian Theatre in Pittsburgh, PA. Tickets currently on sale

Super Smash Opera

Super Smash Opera is a classical opera and video game mashup/parody which premiered on January 23rd, 2015 at MAGfest. “A legendary cast of characters sing their way through a fighting tournament that determines the hero of the next game franchise in this comic cabaret of opera’s best-known songs, performed by a troupe of classically-trained game lovers.” We have since performed at Confluence (July 25, 2015), Replay FX (August 1st, 2015), and are returning to MAGfest Feb 19th, 2016 with our new “Orchestra Edition” featuring a community orchestra and chorus to back us up!
