The opera "Lilith" by librettist Allan Havis and composer Anthony Davis, which premiered in 2009, is given a fresh interpretation by designer Peter Torpey and director Keturah Stickann in this workshop production of five scenes. "Lilith" explores and celebrates the ageless erotic myth of Lilith, the woman who preceded Eve in the Garden of Eden. The opera, which blends a variety of musical tropes from jazz to classical, reenacts the tale from a twin timeframe of contemporary America and the beginning of Paradise. The opera's directing and design concepts rely on windows, mirrors, screens and shadows to reflect the myriad contours of female identity split into two halves. Video and visual projection are essential tools for probing the paradoxes of Lilith's role in contemporary life, and the experimental overtones add to the opera's seductive and eerie impact.
