Karen O discusses upcoming ‘psycho-opera’

Karen O

Yeah Yeah Yeahs singer Karen O has been spreading the word about her upcoming “psycho-opera” called Stop the Virgens. The project was created by Karen O herself along with KK Barrett. It will be directed by Adam Rapp and feature musical direction by both her Yeah Yeah Yeahs bandmate Nick Zinner and Sam “Squeak E. Clean” Spiegel.

Karen O had this to say regarding Stop the Virgens:

“I’m hoping to create an original live experience. It should feel like a psychedelic ride laced with catharsis. This piece isn’t aiming to be all about spectacle or abstraction, though there is a good helping of both in the production.”

Stop the Virgens is set for eight performances in Brooklyn at St. Ann’s Warehouse.
