DENIS & KATYA
Philadelphia, PA, United States
Composer Philip Venables and director Ted Huffman−the duo behind the award-winning 4:48 Psychosis–team up once again on this powerful, ripped-from-the-headlines world premiere about the deaths of two 15-year-old runaways. This multimedia production uses verbatim text to examine the vast public response to these events, what that reveals about our society, and what it means to make an opera out of it. Ms. Edmonds makes her Opera Philadelphia debut as Katya.

Emily Edmonds makes her debut at Komische Oper Berlin, playing the title role of L'enfant in this imaginative production of Ravel's L'enfant et les sortilèges. A collaboration with 1927 Theatre Company, presented alongside Stravinsky's Petrushka as a double bill.
