Proteus Gowanus concludes our Paradise year with a grand finale: a Vertical Player Repertory production of Francesco Cavalli’s 17th century comedic opera La Calisto. Don’t miss this performance replete with divine shenanigans. The performance is staged outside under the stars in the post-industrial courtyard of our 19th century factory building.

Founded in 1998 by Judith Barnes, VPR began life in a storefront in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. Making a successful transition from its intimate black box origins to the wide-open space of the Brooklyn Waterfront, VPR recently created two site-specific productions outdoors at the Red Hook Container Port. Il Tabarro, performed aboard an oil tanker, and Les Contes d’Hoffmann, performed atop tons of raw lumber in an amphitheatre made of huge shipping containers, won wide acclaim and drew crowds from far and wide.
Director Judith Barnes; Conductor and Harpsichordist Jennifer Peterson . Also, introducing three artists making their debut with VPR: Holly Gash, Soprano,in the role of Calisto, Marcy Richardson, Soprano, as Diana and L’Eternita and Matthew Curran, Bass, in the role of Giove.
Rain dates: Saturday July 9, Monday July 11, Friday July 15 and Sunday July 17.
