Guerilla Opera presents the world premiere concert performance of the opera Pedr Solis with music by Per Bloland and libretto by Paul Schick. Pedr Solis is partially based on “The Tower,” a play by Hugo von Hofmannsthal, and the life of Norwegian author Pedr Solis in the late 1960s. In 1970, Solis’s novel “Stillaset” spills into his real life in Oslo. Pedr Solis is 70 minutes in duration, sung in English and scored for soprano, mezzo-soprano, countertenor, baritone, violin, clarinet, saxophone, percussion, and electronics.
