For our inaugural production, WholeTone Opera had a vision for a uniquely morbid Valentine’s Day experience: La Zombiata by Jillian Flexner, a brilliant new comedic opera in one act based loosely on Verdi’s La Traviata.

WTO's mission for this production was to ​immerse​ the audience in a romantic dystopia filled with brain noshing, ballroom dancing zombies. Our story begins in a Parisian penthouse infested an undead hoard lead by Xenobia, huntress of humans. As the minions mingle at a bloody ballroom, romantically inclined Christolpho meets the ravenous-yet-rapturous Philonia. Suddenly all-too-human emotions come into play, leading to chaos, comedy, and a splash-zone-worthy soiree.

We played to a sold-out, somewhat blood-soaked audience and rave reviews!
