have a good day!

opera   HAVE A GOOD DAY!

            for 10 singing cashiers, supermarket sounds and piano

                by Vaiva Grainyte, Lina Lapelyte, Rugile Barzdziukaite

“It's like a mini masterpiece.

It's just nothing to take away, nothing to add –

it's very solid, very  simple and very real.”

                           video diaries by Jonas Mekas, watch

“Clever, charming and quietly subversive.

Whatever critique of capitalist entrapment

and 
consumerist obsession might be implied

is conveyed with subtlety and wit.”                                   

                            Steve Smith, The New York Times



”It’s a tour de force of deadpan comedy...

comes wrapped in a score of incantatory,

almost 
liturgical serenity.’’ 
                                

                      Justin Davidson, New York Magazine

“



...minimalist textures that evoke the swirl of everyday life –

banality transformed into art.

The opera is witty and poignant.”

                           Heidi Waleson, The Wall Street Journal


”A tightly constructed,

multi-layered creation,

its humor pierced by melancholy.” 
                                    

                       Alex Ross, The New Yorker
