Wayne Horvitz to premiere new work

Seattle composer and pianist Wayne Horvitz, who did a dandy job a few years back with his music theater piece about labor martyr Joe Hill, has taken on another labor story for a collaboration with The Central Heating Lab at A Contemporary Theatre. “Smokestack Arias,” about the grisly 1916 Everett Massacre, is a song cycle for soprano voice, piano and electronics with text by Horvitz’s wife, Robin Holcomb. The piece features Cristina Valdes (piano) and Maria Mannisto (soprano). Dayna Hanson will direct. The show opens Feb. 2.
