Nashville Opera Announces World Premiere of
Slightly naughty and oh-so funny, Jan. 27-29 @ TPAC’s James K. Polk Theatre
Nashville — Nov. 23, 2016 — Nashville Opera is excited to announce the world premiere of Three Way, a playful three-act performance that explores the future of love, sex, and need with a clever balance of humor and drama. Each aptly named act (The Companion, Safe Word, and Masquerade) introduces the audience to a collision of contemporary characters who meet at the intersection of power and desire, revealing true longings of the human heart. The complexity of each character and situation is accentuated by the beguiling and melodic score composed by Robert Paterson, libretto by David Cote. Three Way, a co-production with American Opera Projects, debuts in Nashville at James K. Polk Theatre (TPAC) Jan. 27-29.
Perhaps an opera for millennials and perfect for first-time attendees, Three Way is an artistic blend of lyrical storytelling and colloquial language. By pushing the boundaries of “normal” relationships, Three Way celebrates female characters as they hold the reins– an Il Trittico for the Tinder generation, if you will. Sexy, funny, a little bit naughty– Three Way explores Android lovers, dominatrix culture, and the final frontier: multiple partners. Sung in English with complex but accessible and jazzy music, this the perfect opera for an introduction to the genre.
Three Way debuts in Nashville Jan. 27-29 and travels to New York for performances at BAM Fisher (Fishman Space) featuring American Modern Ensemble on June 15-18.
