Director Dara Malina and composer Lacy Rose are adapting Clarice Lispector’s 1964 novella, THE PASSION ACCORDING TO G.H., into a multi-disciplinary opera.

THE PASSION ACCORDING TO G.H. is the story of a woman who encounters a cockroach while cleaning her home, tastes the white stuff inside of the crushed insect, and has an existential awakening. Known only as G.H., an unmarried self-sufficient female sculptor, she travels time and space while never leaving the quadrilateral room described as a “minaret.” This transformative piece celebrates one of the finest Latin American writers of the twentieth-century. Our goal is to create something beautiful, grotesque and sublime. To immerse an audience into the soaring poetic language and abstract depths of this challenging work about individual agency, hope, and the meaning of life. To escape reality and enter the superior unreality of this mind-bending religious experience.
