Summary An operatic production of Ionesco's absurdist play. Since its 1950 debut in Paris, the play has been hailed as an "intensely amusing mixture of social satire, Alice in Wonderland-type logic, verbal delirium and surrealist farce." For the fiftieth anniversary of the founding work of this Theater of the Absurb, the Center for Contemporary Opera has adapted the play, featuring music by American composer Martin Kalmanoff and state-of-the-art video techniques
