Drown the Muse is a one-act chamber opera that explores the relationship between performer and self: the doubts artists face every day, and the vulnerability required to show up, especially when you’re empty.
Over and over and over again.
Borrowing from the traditions of Greek performance, Drown the Muse blends styles and genres to mirror the artistic experiences of its creators. The two writers and performers are Zoë, an actor with a musical theater and improv comedy background, and Hannah, a classically trained opera singer and cellist. Accompanied by a small chamber ensemble, this world-premiere two-hander charts new territory in theatre and opera.
