Keybank Rochester Fringe Festival: Within the Quota

Based on a ballet by Cole Porter, TableTopOpera’s "Within the Quota" looks at 100 years of U.S. immigration policy. The chamber group reworks a transcription of Porter’s score by William Bolcom and Richard Rodney Bennett and – in collaboration with George Eastman Museum – accompanies it with an array of historical and contemporary images and film clips. The ensemble has previously created multi-media projects with noted comic-book artist P. Craig Russell, photojournalist Paolo Pellegrin, and film composer Jeff Beal.
