Nomads NYC is set to present “Passionate Geometries,” a 54-year multimedia retrospective concert of the music of New Mexico-based composer Richard Cameron-Wolfe. The event also serves as a album pre-release preview.

The concert features eight contemporary works including three premieres and five first stagings. Cameron-Wolfe’s chamber music, drama, opera, dance, and poetry/literature will be performed by soprano Nina Berman, pianist Gayle Blankenburg, guitarist Aaron Larget-Caplan, and others, with visual art by Kevin Teare.

The four micro-operas on the program are “A Sound-Shroud for Bill Knott,” the New York premiere of “Heretic,” a micro-opera for guitarist, inspired by Arthur Machen’s 1907 novel “The Hill of Dreams,” Cameron-Wolfe’s 1970 micro-opera “MeMarie,” and “Passionate Geometries.”

“Passionate Geometries” takes place on April 20 at 8 p.m. in the Leonard Nimoy Thalia at Peter Norton Symphony Space.

Cameron-Wolfe’s new album, “Passionate Geometries” will be release on Naxos on July 12.
