Its a little hard to explain, notes Steve Seifert, executive director of the Newman Center for the Performing Arts, where the performance will take place. Its musical, its theatrical, there are two professional actors, and members of the band will deliver lines. Its almost like a mixtape, or a mash-up of excerpts from both pop and avant-garde compositions from that era, as well as some new music thats been composed for this piece.
And its one of the most interesting deconstructions of modern symphonic and pop music around. Alarm Will Sound brings it to the Newman Center, 2344 East Iliff Avenue, tonight at 7:30 p.m.; for tickets, $32 to $48, or more information, visit www.newmancenterpresents.com or call 303-871-4154.
