Sarah Silver Hands
Over the years, Chad Salvata has created several well-received contemporary operas for the Vortex. His works tends to involve elements of fantasy, elaborate costuming, and innovative lighting and set design. They also often include adult themes and nudity, however, which makes them inappropriate viewing for his nieces and nephews. To rectify that situation, he’s spent the last couple of years crafting his latest work, Sarah Silver Hands. It’s a dark faery tale designed for adults and kids alike, including all the things Austinites have come to know and love about his work except for the adult themes and nudity.
Directed by Bonnie Cullum, Sarah Silver Hands has been such a success that it’s been held over for three more performances this weekend, so if you thought you’d missed the run of this show, you’re in luck.
