Dog Days comes home to NYC for 3 performances only in January 2016 with the Prototype Festival.

Based on a powerful short story by Judy Budnitz, and hailed by The Wall Street Journal as “one of the most exciting new operas of recent years” Dog Days, by David T. Little and Royce Vavrek is a shocking reminder of contemporary opera’s raw power. “It’s only a matter of time before this riveting show is confirmed as a groundbreaking American classic.” (The New York Times)

This production features violence, mature themes and adult language. Not recommended for children.

Cherry reprises the role of The Captain which she originated in 2012. This presentation features the entire original cast and creative team.

“Cherry Duke, a plummy mezzo, took the smaller role of the Captain, the officer who invades the family’s home and issues stern warnings.”

—Willard Spiegelman, Opera News

“Cherry Duke is aptly sinister as an army captain.”

—Scott Cantrell, The Dallas Morning News
