It's not every day the opportunity to witness a classically trained opera singer arises. It's even a rarer treat when that talent is packed nice and neat inside the confines of modern rock music. Except, that's precisely what My Brightest Diamond's Shara Worden
does. Adding interest and intrigue to it all, Worden capped it all off with a saucy string quartet when she came to perform at NYC's Le Poisson Rouge.
In the virtuosic performance that follows, Worden, while pulling a few favorites from Bring Me the Workhorse
, centered her gaze on her latest release, A Thousand Shark's Teeth
. Brought to life by the quartet, a puppet show, a magic moment or two, and a few other visual surprises along the way, MBD's performance was as imaginative as it was musically precise. Consider us overwhelmed. - David Pitz
