Doug BALLIETT  Rome is Falling  World Premiere

This new work – conceived and composed by Doug Balliett – tracks the fall of Rome in the form of a high-energy opera in the Libbey Park gazebo. Bringing together members of AMOC and Ruckus – the critically-acclaimed early music band with a fresh approach to baroque music – Rome is Falling presents an exciting new telling where song, spoken word, and driving music come together to contextualize the action. Complete with audience engagement and the performance of members of a local children’s choir, Rome is Falling is a free, public opportunity for Ojai Festival-goers and locals alike to bring a picnic blanket to enjoy.
