The Arrow's Arrival | 2016

(Headphones recommended for optimal sound) 

The Arrow's Arrival is an opera comprised entirely of direct quotes from an iMessage exchange between Luis and xis partner at the time, after Luis cheated on him.

Music for the work was remixed and recomposed by Clee McCracken from Canticle II, War Requiem, and The Songs and Proverbs of William Blake by Benjamin Britten and from L'incoronazione di Poppea by Claudio Monteverdi. 

The piece is performed by baritone Clee McCracken, countertenor ALEXA GRÆ, and pianist Ryan Mastro, with direction, production, and set construction by Luis Mejico.
