Opera gets Fucked Up (Tap: Ex Metallurgy)

I'm currently working on Tap:Ex Metallurgy, a cool project from Tapestry New Opera, the incredible composer Ivan Barbotin, and members from the Canadian band Fucked Up. I'm looking forward to this one. I'm the project's librettist (word), and the process of collaborative idea generation and writing has been unlike any project I've worked on thus far. I think it's gonna be a good one.

I'll be blogging about some of the process over the next couple weeks, but in the meantime, tickets are now on sale through Tapestry New Opera's website. The shows run November 19, 20, and 21 at Toronto's Ernest Balmer Studio, and I hope you can make it.
