Please be introduced to You Us We All, a contemporary version of a baroque opera composed by singer and composer Shara Worden, also known as leader of the band My Brightest Diamond, with a libretto by Andrew Ondrejcak, who also directed and designed the production.

You Us We All was written for a 10 piece baroque ensemble, called B.O.X., Baroque Orchestration X, and for four singers and one actor who inhabit the roles of the allegorical characters Virtue, Love, Hope, Death and Time. The opera is an irreverent take on the court masque, a festive performance that flourished in 16th and early 17th century Europe and which was widely known for its elaborate artifice and grand spectacle. As the characters perform, they reflect on the meaning of their lives in our modern world, and Time strips away the layers of pomp and artifice that had given them shape. Pruned of its clothes, roles and story, the opera turns radically inward as everything is destroyed.

The original cast recording is in the finishing stages now in advance of the US debut this November at the BAM Next Wave Festival (New York) and at Carolina Performing Arts at UNC Chapel Hill. You are invited to help get the album out of the door. This preorder campaign takes many shapes, and will include behind the scenes extras for those of you who would like to follow along with the lead up to the performances. We hope you’d like to help us to complete the final stages of getting this recording to you, and we hope you will support a piece that explores new musical frontiers and also is a really heart warming work that provokes questions about what it is to be a human being.

We hope to see you at one of the performances, but if you can’t make it, we hope that the music can come and find you. No mask required.
