Love/Hate
Composer: Jack Perla
Librettist: Rob Bailis
Premiere Date: April 12, 2012
Description: Love/Hate is a dark-hued comedic rhapsody on contemporary intimate partnerships of every persuasion. Told from the heart, it's a little like Canterbury Tales meets Milan Kundera, with a splash of Dr. Ruth.

Love/Hate traces the arc of the blossoming love between a chilly college professor and her tech-geek, sexually confused new boyfriend. Their affair triggers a quixotic romp through the characters' personal histories, dropping in on pivotal moments in time that have shaped for each their views on love: from clumsy sexual experimentation to full blown commitment, bloodthirsty fights to tender acknowledgments. Reveling in the 21st Century's increasingly absurd mating methodologies, and roiling at the isolation of point and click social lives, Love/Hate shamelessly posits an old paradox for a new era.

Love/Hate is a chamber opera conceived for contemporary performing arts spaces as well as small to medium opera houses and musical theater presenters.
