Chamber opera portrayed with shadow puppets -

And Here We Are is a new shadow puppet opera composed by EiO co-founder Matthew Welch and librettist Daniel Neer. This evening-length opera tells Welch’s great-uncle Edgar Kneedler’s inspiring story of survival in a Japanese prison camp in the Philippines during WWII, and illustrates the power of music to create bonds between cultures and transcend the greatest adversities. Scored for four vocalists and an orchestra combining Welch’s ensemble Blarvuster and Mantra Percussion, And Here We Are will be staged using an innovative and macbre style of Asian shadow puppetry created by director and designer Jeanette Oi-Suk Yew.
