"Openly autobiographical, revealing, instantly lovable." --The New York Times

Crash (2014) is the last opera written by American composer Robert Ashley. Throughout his five-decade career, he radically redefined the operatic genre. A new generation of artists perform this haunting masterpiece, featuring vocalists Gelsey Bell, Brian McCorkle, Paul Pinto, Dave Ruder '05, and Aliza Simons '09 from the music collective Varispeed, as well as Amirtha Kidambi. The six singers rotate through the three characters of the opera, with sound by Music Director Tom Hamilton and photos by Philip Makanna.
