Composer-in-Residence inti figgis-vizueta.

A world premier opera, devised and composed during the summer season by composer-in-residence Inti Figgis-Vizueta, “whose music feels sprouted between structures, liberated from certainty and wrought from a language we’d do well to learn,” writes The Washington Post. Inti’s work explores the transformative power of group improvisation and play, working to reconcile historical aesthetics and experimental practices with trans & Indigenous futures. “The Festival Residency with Opera Saratoga is an incredible opportunity to explore the expressive world of contemporary opera, a first for me as a composer” Figgis-Vizueta says. “My highly collaborative approach to music making is a perfect match with this development-focused residency and I’m excited to organically create a work alongside a talented creative team.
