‘Songs from the Uproar’


Milwaukee Opera Theatre and Wild Space Dance Company team up to create a multimedia mash-up of poetry, music and dance. The 75-minute work tells the story of Isabelle Eberhardt, a Swiss explorer whose diary entries chronicle an unconventional life of exploration and discovery in Europe and northern Africa in the late 19th century. The team producing it is small — five singers, five dancers (including Colleen Brooks as Isabelle), and a tiny chamber ensemble — but the experience is bigger than the sum of its parts.

May 6 to 8 at the Broadway Theatre Center, Milwaukee. $29, $19 students and artists. milwaukeeoperatheatre.org or wildspacedance.org.
