Opera Around The House

Nora Hutchinson

1987, 35:00 minutes, colour, English


Women sit in the backyard discussing the idea of writing an opera before the kids come home from school and the husbands from work. Their angel wings are pieces of acetate, their cars are constructed from plexiglass. Processed video images and B&W images can be viewed as the thoughts of the women imagining themselves onstage.
