 Mark Streshinsky, general director of the scrappy and inventive West Edge Opera, decided to pool all the company's resources into one concentrated burst of activity.
The season opens with Puccini's familiar "La Bohème," and continues with "Hydrogen Jukebox," Philip Glass' treatment of poetry by Allen Ginsberg, and Jake Heggie's operatic version of the Graham Greene novel "The End of the Affair."
The theatrical approach to each work is also varied, ranging from a relatively straightforward production of the Heggie to an offbeat "Bohème" involving lots of audience involvement.

The ground plan for the fourth annual ODC residency of Amy Seiwert's "Sketch" sounds every bit as provocative as its predecessors.
Both Seiwert, who is Imagery's artistic director, and guest choreographer Adam Hougland have independently created new ballets to the same score (though, in their dances, they have arranged the six episodes differently), and both will work with all eight dancers of the Imagery troupe.
Fortunately, the entire team who thrilled in 2013 has returned.
 the two choreographers have influenced the shape and tone of the new score.
For the "Sketch" season, Seiwert suggests that she wants to break down the traditional arrangement in which music serves as mere accompaniment for movement, and is seeking "to create a system in which no one artist controls the process."
The body as tabula rasa on which to write one's identity, history and politics comes powerfully into play in "Projected Personae."
Bodybuilding, drag and various types of performance - whether enacted by a Britney Spears-style blonde or a fiercely funny dominatrix toying with a rather submissive piñata - are just a few of the ways in for the mostly local artists focused on time-based work.
At Somarts, as curators, we're always thinking about how we can respond to our communities and what art is being nurtured and breaking and pushing artists into new spaces.
There's a lot of art being made by local artists about fictitious identities and how invented personas can address questions people might have with people of color and queer bodies and how gender identity can be represented.
La Chica Boom or Xandra Ibarra has two pieces: one is "Dominatriz del Barrio," and the other is "La Corrida," where she's doing a site-specific performance on the border.
 there are layers of complexity about gender identity in the Bay Area but also cultural drag with a diasporic culture of Caribbean and Latin American people in America.
"The whole idea of life and consciousness is so ridiculous," Vollmann says on the phone from his home in Sacramento.
In the story "The Grave-House," the protagonist is eternally stuck in a house where the closet and pillows and inanimate objects speak to him, urging him in a passive-aggressive way never to leave the house.
Other stories, like "Listening to the Shells" - which Vollmann says is one of his favorites from the new collection - deal with subjects of memory and reality.
Sometimes you feel like you're there for a purpose and if somehow you make people aware of a grim, frightening, discouraging thing, then someone else will fix it or we can somehow protect ourselves.
