On March 25 and 26, in a presentation by OPERAtion Brooklyn in Dumbo’s Galapagos Art Space, Del Tredici accompanied a ten-piece orchestra and singers presenting his burlesque opera “Haddocks' Eyes,” which was commissioned by the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and premiered at Alice Tully Hall in 1986.
