This 15 minute opera is about a strange and modern Narcissus who discovers himself in over 30 mirrors including a disco ball, and keeps dressing himself more and more like a combination of a fashion model and Bono. Eventually he ends up getting a face lift.
"The final work is Elizabeth Swados's Narcissus, a sly, witty, contemporary take on the classic myth, with Drance portraying a man in love with his own image and definitely turned on by the transformations of that image that are fashioned by three "Narcissusettes" (Galassini, Johnson, and Mickens)." – NYTheatre.com
