Interplay: Art + Opera

The Art Base and TACAW partnered to bring Interplay: Art + Opera, an interdisciplinary, collaborative project conceived of by three Denver-Based performers, Kira Dills-DeSurra (Mezzo-Soprano), Leah Podzimek (Soprano), and Jessica Nilles Kressin (Piano), to the Roaring Fork Valley.

15 contemporary artists of all mediums from the Roaring Fork Valley responded to the preview opera performance and will exhibit their work at the Art Base. The same music will be performed live during the opening reception so that audiences, artists, and musicians join together in sound and color, making for a multi-sensorial art experience.⁠
