Acquanetta - Prototype Festival (tickets included)

You don't have a ticket for this event!

Register for your free ticket now >>


WORLD PREMIERE, Chamber Version
In the new opera Acquanetta, the spirit of 1940s horror movies is turned inside out in a bravura, one-act deconstruction of the genre that explores how vision relates to identity. Characters include the mad scientist Doctor, the insistent Ape, the reluctant Brainy Woman, the visionary Director and the beautiful Acquanetta, aka Mildred Davenport, an actress who disguised her identity. Acquanetta examines the ways the movie camera manipulates how we see and are seen. In soaring, sometimes comic and always indelible songs that capture the heightened drama of horror films, these vivid characters reveal their inner longings and emotional shadows in what is ultimately a haunting meditation on the meaning of identity, transformation, stereotypes and typecasting, set in the heyday of Hollywood gloss.

Art-Centered Partnerships – Inspiration and Experience
Part 1 – Inspiration
4:45 p.m. – 5:45 p.m.
This session will explore one side of creative place-making – creating work that emerges from mutually-beneficial partnerships that invite and engage different communities in the creation and production of the work, and that have lasting civic value after the project is completed.


Part 2 – Experience
5:45 p.m. – 6:45 p.m.
Whether it is reimagining a company’s traditional space or finding an alternative venue that has a history of its own and resonates with the theme of the opera, using the theater as part of the art-making can add meaning for new audiences and change the understanding of opera and the role it can play in the life of a community.

Telling the Right Story
The traditions of our inherited repertoire can limit the types of stories that are told on opera stages. New stories with meaning for a new public may not meet the expectations of established audiences. At the same time, the stories of canonic works may not appeal to newcomers to the art form. This session will explore the options and strategies for new and revised story-telling in opera.

Untold Lies - Nautilus Music Theater (Tickets included)

You don't have a ticket for this event!

Register for your free ticket now >>


About  the Performance
UNTOLD LIES tells the story of two farmhands, Ray Person (married to Minnie) and young Hal Winters. In conversation, Hal asks Ray for advice, which results in emotional soul-searching on Ray's part, questioning his own life choices.
Dramaturgically, UNTOLD LIES honors familiar operatic conventions. There's a folk song, arias, duets, a power trio, and a passionate operatic scena (in cavatina/cabeletta form) full of emotional highs and lows. The overt storytelling of Anderson’s novel is reflected in the neo-Brechtian use of direct audience address; characters turn mid-scene and deliver inner musings directly to the audience, as well as an out-of-time-and-place prelude and interlude. The audience experiences the singers both as storytellers in the moment, and as characters created by Anderson (and re-imagined by Payne and Elhai).
The score is rooted in musical Americana, including “roots“ orchestration, in a vernacular “folk“ style consistent with the characters’ rural culture and psychological state. Melodic clarity and rhythmic invention drive the score, seasoned throughout with harmonic pungency, with enough musical complexity and vocal punch to be thought of as a “folk opera”.
UNTOLD LIES an unconducted chamber piece scored for piano, violin, accordion, and string bass. For the New Works Forum, it will be performed with piano, violin, and the original cast of soprano, tenor, and baritone in a semi-concert format.

Freedom Ride - Juventas New Music Theater (Tickets included)

You don't have a ticket for this event!

Register for your free ticket now >>


About the Performance
In April 2018, Juventas New Music will produce the world premiere of Dan Shore’s opera Freedom Ride at The Strand Theater in Boston. Through lush, beautiful harmonies, Freedom Ride celebrates and communicates a critical historical moment for America’s Civil Rights Movement. The themes and issues at the heart of Freedom Ride are still incredibly relevant today as our society grapples with the persistent presence of institutional racism in America.
Freedom Ride tells the story of Sylvie Davenport, a young African-American student from New Orleans, as she slowly becomes involved in the Civil Rights Movement in the summer of 1961. The Congress of Racial Equality is looking for volunteers to help desegregate transportation in the South by riding to Jackson, where they face imprisonment for these actions. These journeys later become known as “Freedom Rides”. Initially reluctant, Sylvie becomes infatuated with activist Clayton Thomas and tentatively agrees to join the Freedom Rides, despite catastrophic personal consequences.
This showcase production features an abbreviated version of the opera, with selections from several scenes from Acts 1 and 2. The showcase follows Sylvie as she gains the courage to both confess her love to Clayton and embark on her Freedom Ride, despite warnings and admonishments from friends, families and strangers. The excerpts feature several soloists and the chorus, and taken together, they reflect not only the rich musical language of the opera but also the moving emotional arc of the story. The opera calls for an African-American cast of principals, a mixed-race chorus, and African American Production Team. In a field that remains predominantly Caucasian, operas that insist on full racial representation are essential.

Is There a New American Opera Sound?
Composers new to opera are melding new musical language(s) into a “classical music” art form.  Does the rich new mixture of musical voices define a new American style of opera?  This “fishbowl” discussion will explore the dimensions of this new style and challenge attendees to consider whether the existing opera community is prepared to embrace it.

Marie Begins - Tri-Cities Opera (Tickets included)

You don't have a ticket for this event!

Register for your free ticket now >>


About the Performance
Marie is a modern woman in a time of endless possibilities. But on her 30th birthday, she reflects on her life and realizes she hasn’t done much of anything, especially since her father passed away. Today will be the day that she starts getting her life together. The opera, which takes place in the modern apartment of the female lead, starts with an introduction of the main character, Marie. At the end of this scene the audience votes which path to take from the two choices presented. After the audience selects the first path, they will encounter other choices at the end of each 2-6 minute scene. With each choice, characters who are intertwined with the lead character present new plot twists and dilemmas. The scenes progress from solo to ensemble singing as the experience unfolds.
Marie Begins is a condensed, comic opera with Jazz and Classical music roots.  A chorus is incorporated as cinematic memories of friends and family of Marie and as her interior voice, the voice she battles with.  A jazz trio with a Keyboard/Sampler accompanies the cast of five singers.  The sampler is used to integrate the sounds of the apartment into the music as a way to expand the story through music.  For example, in an interlude the singers are interrupted by their mobile devices leaving sentences unfinished and conversations incomplete.  The incorporation of sounds from modern life serves as a way to further comment on Marie’s dilemma as she battles with distraction and “busyness” in her life while feeling as if she has accomplished little.
