NEW YORK (AP) - The Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O will unveil her mini-opera “Stop the Virgens” next month at a cultural and arts festival put on by Vice and Intel’s The Creators Project.

The two-day festival in downtown Brooklyn, N.Y., will also feature performances from acts like Florence and the Machine, as well as multimedia works, including one featuring David Bowie. The festival promises major sculptures, film screenings and panels.

Karen O’s project, featuring nine songs, is described as a “psycho-opera” and an “assault on the tragic joys of youth.” Karen O lauded the The Creators Project, saying it “champions the artist and the art in a desperate time where artist exploitation runs rampant.”

The event is scheduled Oct. 15-16, and is free, with the exception of Karen O’s opera.
