Graham Reynolds’ ‘Pancho Villa From A Safe Distance’ Debuts At The Theatre At Ace in Downtown L.A. in October

Graham Reynolds, composer of scores released on Lakeshore Records like Richard Linklater: Dream Is Destiny, Bernie and A Scanner Darkly, presents “Pancho Villa From A Safe Distance” on Tuesday, October 10 (8:30 p.m.) at The Theatre At Ace Hotel in Downtown, Los Angeles!  Get tickets here.  More details below.

Austin-based composer and bandleader Graham Reynolds—celebrated for wide-ranging credits that include film scores for Richard Linklater and collaborations with Jack Black and DJ Spooky — leads a rousing experimental chamber opera that pays tribute to a revolutionary and legendary figure. Pancho Villa From a Safe Distance explores the life and legacy of Pancho Villa, and sonically traverses both Mexican and American perspectives to reveal intersections and conflicts to create a borderless dialogue about the shared histories of Mexico and the United States. Featuring hybrid compositional and production techniques and an extensive sound palette, Pancho Villa is a rousing transnational collaboration that brings together Mexico City theater collective Lagartijas Tiradas al Sol as librettists, director Shawn Sides of Rude Mechs, Kronos Quartet lighting designer Brian Scott, Austin Lyric Opera tenor Paul Sanchez, mezzo-soprano Liz Cass, Grammy Award® winning guitarist/producer Adrian Quesada, and backed by a stellar chamber ensemble with remixes by famed Monterrey DJ Toy Selectah.
