Opera on Tap is teaming up with Kinesis Project dance theatre and Anti-Social Music with Summer on the Hudson to present “Capacity, or: the Work of Crackling” on Sept. 24 and 25, 2022.

The showcase will feature music by composers Diana Woolner, David Friend, Eyal Moaz, and Brian McCorkle as well as costumes by Rebecca Kanach, and sound design by Shahrokh Yadegari. Melissa Riker, the choreographer and artistic director of the Kinesis Project, will lead the production.

“We are so excited to be working again with our friends at Kinesis Project and at Anti-Social Music to bring this innovative and community-driven piece to one of New York City’s great parks this Fall,” said Anne Hiatt, Artistic and Executive Director, Opera on Tap, in an official press statement. “At its core, this project invites audiences to explore the human capacity for grief and resilience in context of the greater, overwhelming and ever-shifting world that surrounds us. To me, this project invites healing and reflection at a time when we all individually and collectively need it. Without question, it is a piece for our time, and one that I am very proud to be a part of.”

The performances will take place at Riverside Park South.
