Peak Performances will present the American premiere of The Force of Things: An Opera for Objects at Montclair State's incredible Alexander Kasser Theater. Created in collaboration with architect Adam Fure and the International Contemporary Ensemble, The Force of Things is an immersive work of music theater that wrestles with the animate vitality of matter and the mounting hum of ecological anxiety around us. Performances will take place on October 6 at 7:30pm, October 7 at 8pm, and October 7 & 8 at 3pm. Tickets, affordably priced at $20, can be purchased at www.peakperfs.org or 973.655.5112. The running time is approximately 65 minutes, with no intermission.
