ritornello { preview }

To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.   – William Blake
Caroline Shaw is a composer/violinist/violist/singer from North Carolina. Her piece, ritornello, makes up half of this weekend’s operaSHOP, presented by Opera Cabal.

While her counterpart, Elliot Cole, channels hip hop à la Aesop Rock, she taps into the delicate simplicity of the folk music of her roots: macro and micro in a swirling totentanz.

Performances are Friday and Saturday at 7:30. See here for more details.
