Let Me Die
About Let Me Die
"Let Me Die" combines death sequences drawn from the canon of tragic opera, with original narratives and music. Absurd yet affecting, this ensemble performance collage is at once a festive meditation, strange ritual, and morbid medley of epic proportions. Using fragmentation as a poetic strategy, "Let Me Die" borrows its title from “Lasciatemi morire,” the Monteverdi aria which is itself a fragment—a death song from a lost opera.
