The Wonderland Series Premiere and Party
Arete Venue and Gallery
November 17, 7pm $15 at door

The Wonderland Series by Anna Heflin is a 38-minute solo opera for singing, speaking, and acting violinist Shannon Reilly. Reilly is joined onstage by accompanying pre-recorded audio and video, all of which features her portraying the various characters. There are three layers to the piece: the music which is inspired by Lewis Carroll’s writings, scholarly research about the work and Charles Dodgson, and the character of Lewis Carroll/Charles Dodgson which uses quotes from the author. After falling into Wonderland, the listener will encounter Lewis Carroll/Charles Dodgson, The Scholar, Alice, The Queen, the Garden of Live Flowers, the Playing Cards, Dinah and others over the course of their journey. Themes in the work include the law, Dodgson’s obsession with 42 and its relevance to Chrisistianity and the Jabberwocky, the Carroll/Dodgson split identity, how Darwin’s work influenced Alice in Wonderland and more. This all may sound dreadfully confusing, but that’s the effect of living backwards! Reilly will perform the work memorized at Areté Venue in Greenpoint Brooklyn on November 17 (a very important date) at 7pm.

Further performances include:
Buffalo NY November 3 2019
Chicago November 24 2019
