Opera: ‘Science Fair: An Opera With Experiments’
It’s a fair. A science fair. “Science Fair: An Opera With Experiments,” starring Hai-Ting Chinn, a mezzo soprano with perfect diction who has sung Mozart, Purcell, Glass and now Schickele. That’s her husband, Matthew Schickele, son of Peter Schickele — you know, the fellow who can actually play notes on a garden hose.
The opera’s libretto was written by a variety of physicists, astronomers, physicians, a neurologist and a biologist.
