Before their musical The Memory Show  debuts Off-Broadway in April, Zach Redler and Sara Cooper return to AOP with a work developed during the Composers & the Voice program. From a prostitute who is desperately in love with her pimp to a teenage father whose baby will just not stop crying, the six monodramas of Windows look at characters dealing with unrequited love.

The 40-minute show will be presented as part of OPERAtion Brooklyn on Saturday, March 23 with performances by Sumayya Ali, Amelia Watkins, Jeffrey Gavett, Justin Hopkins, Brittney Redler, and Etai BenShlomo and direction by Noah Himmelstein with Mila Henry on piano.

Windows is made possible in part by a generous multi-year award from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Zach Redler and Sara Cooper are supported by funding from The New York Community Trust Edward and Sally Van Lier Fund and Musical Arts Fund.
