Put A Bird On It
WHEN: May 2 at 7:30 PM; May 3 at 7:30 PM
WHERE: Single Carrot Theatre, 1727 N. Charles St., Baltimore
TICKETS: $20 general admission; $15 students, seniors, and artists
Winter is finally over. We have longed for the birds to come back. We were wrong…
Put A Bird On It is a delightful and suspenseful evening of opera, narrative, puppetry and more than a few feathers.
Through the warped imaginations of soprano Lydia Beasley, puppeteer Julia M. Smith, performer Susan Stroupe, and designer Sarah Lloyd, Put A Bird On It is a salon-style event that retells the classic thriller The Birds, weaving in avian-inspired arias, gothic poetry, philosophical musings, shadowy puppetry…and taxidermy.
