NEW YORK, September 20 — The Aviva Players, now in its 40th season, invites opera goers to travel into the past and future with its “Double Feature of Chamber Opera Films” to be presented at Opera America, 330 Seventh Ave., Manhattan, on November 4. The films are “Villa Diodati” a screen version of Mira J. Spektor’s opera about Mary Shelley and the origins of her Frankenstein story, and “Libertaria: the Virtual Opera” by Sabrina Pena Young, a futuristic animated tale that may be the world’s first original machinima opera and is certainly one of the few animated comic book operas.
The evening is the second part of the Aviva Players’ 40th Anniversary Series to be presented this fall at Opera America.
