  6. Zinnias: The Life of Clementine Hunter

    The World Premiere of Robert Wilson’s New Opera, ZINNIAS – THE LIFE OF CLEMENTINE HUNTER, will perform January 26 – February 3, 2013. It is only when the curtain goes up that the truth is told. With a working process as intuitive, unique, meticulous, and enigmatic as the resulting shows, it is a blind gamble to predict much about any Robert Wilson production, except its riveting genius. Aside from music steeped in Southern blues, traditional hymns and chants and zydeco, with less than three weeks out on the world premiere of Wilson’s “Zinnias – The Life of Clementine Hunter” at Peak Performances, January 26-February 3, only the facts of the show can be revealed with certainty.
