What Did Freud Dream About? Is a one night only mixed-medium performance combining live opera, dance, and art. The intimate and unique evening was inspired by Freudian dreams and his theories about the Unconscious, a dialogue bringing together three different realms of art.
Renowned composer Doug Balliett composed a new melodic opera based around Freud's dream-based theories. Opera’s rising bass star Davone Tines sang, accompanied by the Philharmonic's Ashley Jackson on the harp. Alongside them, fifteen-year New York City Ballet dancer Sean Suozzi performed a unique dance. This coincided with a live art performance by abstract painter Chris Willcox.
