Pianists Anthony Porter and Sarah Cahill, Soprano Amy Foote, and Bass Richard Mix present an evening of Italian contemporary pocket operas suspended in between the humorous and the apocalyptic.

Featured works are Fabrizio de Rossi Re's King Kong, amore mio (King Kong, My Love; 2011), on a libretto by Luis Gabriel Santiago, and the world premiere of Ada Gentile's La giornata di un soprano isterico (A day in the life of a hysterical soprano; 2013), on a libretto by Sandro Cappelletto.

The event is produced by the Italian Cultural Institute of San Francisco.
