Beschreibung

Seven years in the making and featuring over fifty artists onstage, Karen O's STOP THE VIRGENS is Vivid LIVE's most ambitious undertaking yet. Created by Karen O, the frontwoman of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, in collaboration with KK Barrett, production designer behind Being John Malkovich and Lost In Translation, and indie theatre/film director Adam Rapp (Red Light Winter, In Treatment) the self described 'Psycho Opera' transcends the traditional boundaries of popular music, theatre and performance.

For musical accompaniment, Karen O has gathered the crème of indie rock to realise this beautiful and powerful song cycle. Led by Sam Spiegel (aka Squeak E. Clean) and Yeah Yeah Yeahs band mates Nick Zinner and Brian Chase, the 13 piece musical accompaniment features her closest friends and collaborators, including Money Mark (Beastie Boys), Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler (The Greenhornes, The Raconteurs) and Jason Grisell (Bubbles). Described by The New York Times as 'a psychedelic myth', STOP THE VIRGENS is the culmination of the evolution of Karen O thus far, her autobiographical journey, and one where 'the stakes are high, the emotion runs deep, and the presentation is operatic'.
