Indiana University Opera closes out its season with a ground-breaker: The world premiere of a full-length opera by Pulitzer-Prize-winner Bernard Rands and libretto by poet and Yale Review Editor J.D. McClatchy. Guest artists David Adam Moore and Christopher Burchett alternate in the lead role.

When the subject is Vincent VanGogh, though, you know the visuals are important as well, which means a design that incorporates hundreds of images to take patrons into the mind of the troubled genius. I don’t want to talk you out of seeing it live, but if you absolutely can’t get to Bloomington—or if you want to see it live on Friday and compare it with the Saturday performance, check out the live stream of either or both of the first two performances here. Details on the production here.
