We are a people in mourning. A dark shadow has been cast from Gotham’s blackest tower, stretching across the land. We lament at its doorstep.
We, the nation’s bloggers, journalists, artists, and critics were some of the first to cry. But our cries went unheeded. Now we must paint our lips in the darkest of hues and adorn our bodies with the garments of bereavement. It is time for our sadness to be made visible.
It is time for a Goth Opera.
In an era when independent journalism couldn’t be more critical, Art F City will throw its first goth opera to benefit this essential work, featuring the rich, versatile 3+ octave voice of Joseph Keckler. Like a black velvet hood, our event will instill an element of mystery opulence—all in support of independent journalism and the arts in 2017.
