Synopsis: Written and performed during the COVID pandemic,Alice in the Pandemic takes a deep dive down the rabbit hole into the elasticity of time, the unmooring of life, the heroism of doing one’s job, and the reconciliation of mother and daughter. The production uses newly developed technology which enables singers at remote locations to sing synchronously together as they interact with each other and their 3D avatars who lip sync in real time to live performance.

Composer Sosa’s broad stylistic palette incorporated lyrical impassioned melodies, kooky carnival music, and efficient recitative

—Joanne Sydney Lessner, Opera News, Review

"Jorge Sosa's score is rapturous...As an evening's entertainment, this should not be missed...As an experiment in digital performance, this should not be ignored".


Andrew Child, Broadway World, Review
