Guerilla Opera presents Let’s Make a Sandwich, an experiment in opera production, which includes two world premiere operas, RareBit with music and libretto by Curtis K. Hughes, and Ouroboros with music and libretto by Rudolf Rojahn, with stage direction by Copeland Woodruff and Giselle Ty.

Through performance, this production investigates the culture of contemporary opera production and highlights where the influence of the composer ends and the director begins.
