The Industry presents Second Take: Bonnie and Clyde

February 25th, 2017 | 8:00pm

Creating the role of Bonnie in The Industry's presentation of Bonnie and Clyde, an opera that whose world premiere takes a fresh look at Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow’s 1930s crime spree through the eyes of those who witnessed it. The work is a tense and complex emotional reading of the often contradictory historical records created by family, collaborators, bystanders, and law enforcement. The result is a portrait of the notorious couple’s lives outside their legendary status. Andrew McIntosh, one of the composers of The Industry’s Hopscotch, writes music of “spare, rarefied sonorities, which tilt away from traditional tunings, give an air of mythic otherness.” (The New Yorker) He has been praised for “gorgeous, shape-shifting panes of color and light create a psychologically potent yet exquisitely balanced work of art” (Bachtrack).
