Hold on tight, Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs is getting ready to unveil a psycho-opera this October in NYC’s own Brooklyn. Part of The Creators Project, the opera, titled Stop The Virgins, will run at St Ann’s Warehouse from October 12-22.
Stop The Virgins features songs by Karen O and musical direction from bandmate Nick Zinner and Sam Spiegel (Squeak E. Clean of N.A.S.A.). Others involved in the project include members of the Greenhornes/Raconteurs, Money Mark, Yeah Yeah Yeah’s drummer Brian Chase, and actress Lili Taylor. Karen O also enlisted her stage costume designer Christian Joy to create the garments for the opera.
This will for sure get your not-so-typical crowd out to the opera, including myself! Can’t wait to witness the psycho-artistry of it all.
