The Edgar Allan Poe short story "The Black Cat" is already a disturbing but engrossing tale of a man who drunkenly murders his pet cat, only to be haunted by its spirit and his ultimately damning and maddening sense of guilt. But this classic fable is taken to even greater extremes in the U.S. premiere of Long Beach Opera and Musica Angelica Baroque Orchestra's surreal operatic adaptation, which mashes together the traditional melodies of J.S. Bach and the darkly foreboding modern music of former Japan frontman David Sylvian. Feline dancers Sylvia Camarda and Jean-Guillaume Weis torment and tease tenor Nicholas Mulroy in a thoroughly bizarre multimedia presentation helmed by conductor Martin Haselböck and director Frank Hoffman.
