Vertical Player Repertory Presents 'La Calisto' At Proteus Gowanus

La Calisto Poster

I highly recommend getting your tickets early to this great event by the Vertical Player Repertory, which will be staged in the courtyard of Proteus Gowanus on Nevins Street. Read on.

Vertical Player Repertory presents:
La Calisto at Proteus Gowanus

Continuing its tradition of staging productions in unconventional locations such as the Red Hook piers, Vertical Player Repertory will present Francesco Cavalli’s 17th century Venetian opera La Calisto under the stars in the gritty post-industrial courtyard of a 19th century factory building, home of the gallery Proteus Gowanus. This rarely performed early opera tells the story of Jupiter’s seduction of Calisto, a virgin follower of the huntress Diana. Produced and directed by Judith Barnes, with a cast of twenty and a baroque ensemble featuring period instruments. The opera will be conducted from the harpsichord by Jennifer Peterson. Friday July 8, Sunday July 10, Thursday July 14, and Saturday July 16 at 534 Union Street at Nevins Street. All shows are at 8pm. Tickets are available
