The Inner Circle is a sexually blunt new opera about a group of researchers in the 1940s, led by the charismatic visionary Professor Kinsey, whose lives are entangled in his quest to scientifically study human sexual behavior in a way never before attempted. Let Opera on Tap tease you with scenes from this opera-in-development by Daniel Felsenfeld and Kate Gale, followed by a talk-back and reception with the creators. Incubated by the cell theater, The Inner Circle is part of Opera on Tap’s Roadworks commissioning series.
