NEWS: “Loose, Wet, Perforated” by Nicholas Vines Available on Navona Records

Composer Nicholas Vines’ surreal opera Loose, Wet, Perforated comes to life in this Navona Records release. Commissioned by the Boston-based experimental opera company Guerilla Opera and premiered in 2011, this audacious, rollicking conceptual mash-up by composer Nicholas Vines puts a very modern spin on some quite ancient ideas.

Ms. de la Guardia's second Navona Records performance was praised by Gramophone, which writes: "Aliana de la Guardia’s Loose lets loose dizzying flights of virtuosity, highlighted by screaming riffs so painful that you want them to simultaneously stop and never go away."
