Growing up in the Zappa household, Dweezil Zappa marveled at his father Frank's virtuoso skills as a composer and guitarist. After Frank's death, Dweezil was inspired to do something to honor his father. He set out to have the music speak for itself. If Zappa Plays Zappa was to become a conduit for a new generation of people discovering Frank Zappa's music, Dweezil wanted to ensure that very little was lost in translation.

Queen Boudicca: A Metal Opera is an original dramatic opera composed by Robert E. Schlink, associate professor in Berklee's Ensemble Department, and his son, Berklee alumnus Robert C. Schlink, and directed by Carol Schlink. Queen Boudicca: A Metal Opera is scored for a large company of singers, a small conventional orchestra, and a heavy metal band. With music influenced by modern metal as well as mid- to late-20th century concert music, this opera tells the story of Boudicca, queen of the Britons, who led a devastating revolt against Roman occupation. "A treacherous lioness butchered the governors who had been left to give strength to Roman rule" is how Roman historian Gildas characterized Boudicca. Her story is one of the greatest tales of courage and heroism in Celtic history, one that every school child would probably know if Boudicca had been a man.

The show features Berklee alumna Ava Gaudet as Queen Boudicca. Gaudet has appeared on Broadway as Maureen and Mimi in Rent and has numerous film and television credits including N.C.I.S., Mike and Molly, The Exes, and Private Practice.

Episode

Get up, get loose, and get ready to party with the “funkifized” sound of melodic grooves and catchy melodies, born out of late name jam sessions between friends, from Boston-based band Ripe.

Joining Ripe on the bill is Episode, a New York-based alt-pop band that draws on several genres in blending live instruments with some smooth production techniques.

Rounding out the night, Boston-based I/O cites influences like Explosions in the Sky, Sigur Ros, and Hammock. Its first full-length instrumental album is based on open textures and the belief that the human experience can be too beautiful, grotesque, inspiring, abhorrent, heartwarming, and traumatic to put into words.

Admission: 
Free
