$15 ($10 students/seniors), Notecard

The Modern Music Ensemble (Inverted Space), the University of Washington’s contemporary music ensemble, presents three on-campus concerts a year, performing both the “classics” of the modern era and hot-off-the-presses works from the best of today’s composers, including our own University of Washington faculty and students. In their final campus performance of the 2014-15 season, the group performs Italian composer Bruno Maderna’s 1962 experimental opera Don Perlimplín, based on “The Love of Don Perlimplín and Belisa in the Garden (Amor de Don Perlimplín con Belisa en su jardín”), a play by the 20th-century Spanish dramatist Federico García Lorca.
