Zabathon II …A night featuring the work of Winnipeg composer Tristan Zaba. The night's main feature will be the mounting of Tristan's first operatic production by the University of Manitoba Opera Theatre. The opera is based on Philip K Dick's (Blade Runner, A Scanner Darkly) short story of the same name. "I Hope I Shall Arrive Soon", is a science fiction metaphor for Dick's ideas regarding the nature of reality and his interpretation of Gnostic Christian theology. Also being performed will be a variety of Tristan's other works, including a short musical "ambidrama" about a lighthouse keeper's musings on isolation and a performance by Tristan's rock band, showcasing material for their new genre-spanning release, "The Mosaic".
