Tragedy on the Sea Nymph

An Operetta in Three Acts Starring an All-Dog Cast

Part of Machine Project: Summer Jubilee Field Days, Machine Project

Tragedy on the Sea Nymph is a filmed 10-minute operetta depicting the romance and tragedy of clandestine lovers shipwrecked at sea. Starring an all-dog cast accompanied by live human singers and the Cedar String Quartet, this piece explores the remarkable connections between the affectations of operas and the lives of dogs. This performance is marked by focused, myopic attentions, yearning, love, and loss. Dogs and humans welcome to attend. BYO water bowls and hankies. Written by Elizabeth Cline with music by Lewis Pesacov.
