New York: Excerpts from Reid’s New Climate Opera

June 13

Join Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Ellen Reid on June 13 at National Sawdust for an evening of excerpts from her provocative new opera, The Shell Trial, fresh on the heels of its world premiere in Amsterdam. Based on the play De zaak Shell by Rebekka de Wit and Anoek Nuyens, the opera explores climate devastation as a crisis of responsibility via a landmark 2021 court case in which environmentalists won a shocking lawsuit against Shell Oil.
