Gregory Vajda–Mark Childress: Georgia Bottoms – Premiere in Hungary
A Comic Opera of the Modern South
- Georgia Bottoms – A Comic Opera of the Modern South
Gregory Vajda’s comic opera, which premiered in the United States in 2015, is presented here as part of the CAFe Budapest Contemporary Arts Festival. At the focal point is our heroine, who attempts to sustain herself and her family with the ‘gifts’ given to her by wealthier admirers. Her complicated life, her disintegrating family and her dark secret hold the audience spellbound right from the very first minute. The performance (in English) is conducted by the composer himself, whose works have, through their unique sound based on variable tones and unusual effects, stirred up ever more attention worldwide in the last few decades.
