The Times Are Nightfall Chicago micro opera

THE TIMES ARE NIGHTFALL is a "micro-opera" by composer Ross Crean and librettist Aiden K. Feltkamp, with Chloe Schaff.  Presented at Pride Film & Plays in Chicago, as part of "Ross Crean Presents: A Queer Engagement," also including a cabaret of art song by queer composers.  


In this sequel to DON GIOVANNI, Donna Anna and Donna Elvira respond to the demise of Don Giovanni.  The 1950’s pulp-style drama explores rape culture, trauma and grief through the lens of two women who find solace in the most unexpected place: one another.
