Kate Soper is a multi-talented composer, singer, and writer whose theatrical chamber music masterpiece IPSA DIXIT (“She, herself, said it”) explores the integration of music, drama, and rhetoric. Called a “philosophy­ opera” by The New Yorker, the work blends aspects of monodrama, Greek theater, and screwball comedy in a musical journey that examines the treachery of language and the questionable authenticity of artistic expression. The composer herself performs the virtuosic score alongside members of the ensemble Wet Ink in this evening-length tour de force.
