Opera is often thought of as sung words in a theatrical context but El Gallo (over 100 performances internationally by Teatro de Ciertos Habitantes) has no words. La Malinche and the Pillow Song are both operas where the instrumentalists are on stage throughout as performers with the singers, as actor-musicians. Dirty Tricks has seven singers with only an electric bass. The Marriages Between Zones 3,4 & 5 is for 14 instruments including a Sarod with a cast of 5, a dancer and a children’s chorus.
