Based on the compelling story written by Canadian musician Colin McPhee, who is internationally recognized for his role during the 1930s supporting a major rennaissance in Balinese music and its reception into the west, Bang on a Can All-Stars will play a central role in a new opera composed by Evan for a cast of 30 performers including 20 Balinese musicians and dancers, plus the singers Anne Harley (soprano), Marc Molomot (tenor), and Timur Bekbosunov (tenor). The piece will premiere in a workshop form on June 26-27, 2009 in Bali and in its fully staged form in the US at Cal Performances, UC Berkeley, September 26-27, 2009.
