Description




PRÊT A CHANTER - A Real Time Opera by LORE LIXENBERG

'PRET A CHANTER™' is the ultimate political work as in 'Politi' the life of the city. It is a post-internet,post-cyborg real-time opera that seeks to blur the bounderies between art and life, vocalisations (including singing and different languages but no speaking), different cultures, different economic and post-economy systems and different psychologies.

Anyone who steps over the threshold of 'PRET A CHANTER™' must abide by the rules of the opera. Anyone who enters 'PRET A CHANTER™' must succumb to the experiment that is opera.
