In a world that seems to remain divided, Kate Soper's opera Ipsa Dixit – a finalist for the 2017 Pulitzer Prize – explores the ways that we communicate. Language is complex and words are more than what they mean on the surface. Experience this semi-staged interactive opera that will leave you surprised, engaged, and hopefully more aware of the power of words. Hosted by Original Gravity Concert Series, this performance by Equilibrium is in collaboration with seven local brewers who will pair beers to be served throughout the piece. Specially selected beers by Allagash Brewing Company, True North Ale Company, Exhibit 'A' Brewing Company, Jack's Abby Craft Lagers, Redemption Rock Brewing, Cambridge Brewing Company, and Bone Up Brewing Company help tell the story alongside the music creating an interactive, multi-sensory event like no other.
