Ross Karre's program, "Opera with Objects," is comprised of several works from the last 50 years involving objects as phenomenological inquiry, as whimsy, as vessel, and as a means of containing (or liberating) larger worlds of perception. With works from figureheads like Alvin Lucier and Vinko Globokar alongside brand new works by Fritz Hauser, Mark Applebaum, and Natacha Diels, this performance presents a continuous intermedial tour of a variety of interactions with found objects.
