Does anyone need convincing that life is an opera? We mean real life, not yours. PHOEBE LEGERE (“…a name to conjure with … She is an American original, she’s fun, she’s funny, she’s smart. She’s a beauty, almost like a Carole Lombard. But the main thing about her is SHE’S GOOD”-Studs Terkel, NPR) will use her latest invention, the Sneakers of Samothrace, to perform excerpts of her opera on the evolution of life, The Common Root of All Organisms. She is paired with MARK MOFFETT, an ecologist trained under E. O. Wilson. Mark, as close to Indiana Jones as they come, is one of the great nature photographers of our time. He will use his colorful images to discuss the common structural features of ecosystems.
