BEA IS SERVING AS DRAMATURGE ON "THE INNER CIRCLE"

it is due to be workshopped at the Flea Theatre this January!

Daniel Felsenfeld and Kate Gale have masterfully crafted an opera about Kinsey's studies of human sexuality. Brittany is honored to be serving as dramaturge in the development of this awesome piece.


Bea just got back from a writing pilgrimage in Paris!

Tabula Rasa, a new Dada jazz opera with score by Felix Jarrar, explores the real-life impulse and heartbreak of Kiki de Montparnasse, and her liberating romantic escapades with artists throughout the 1920s in the Montparnasse quarters of Paris. Brittany just spent a few weeks in Europe walking the streets where Kiki and her lover Man Ray used to live, love and make art.



The Cantanti Project will be producing Tabula in May 2018, details to be announced. In the meantime, here's a preview of the opening aria, "Blue".

bea is adapting Kafka TOO!
