A Marvelous Order

Join us at the River to River Festival this Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday, when we'll present two scenes from A MARVELOUS ORDERin Lower Manhattan's new Fulton Center transit hub.

A MARVELOUS ORDER
Two Scenes: Jones Beach and Moses Turns Ideas Into Reality
June 15, 17, and 18 at 7:00 PM sharp (25 minute performances)
Fulton Center
200 Broadway, New York, NY
 
http://lmcc.net/event/a-marvelous-order-2/

We’re excited to bring excerpts of A MARVELOUS ORDER, our opera about Jane Jacobs and Robert Moses, to a very special performance in lower Manhattan this week. A 25 minute excerpt of the opera will be presented live, in a site-specific adaptation for the Fulton Center, a new transit hub of the MTA. Josh will modify the opera’s animations to fit the wrap-around LED screens within the terminal, while live performers sing and play instruments in the midst of commuters and tourists and everyone else. The station will remain open to the public as usual while the opera unfolds among and around them.

This event is free and performances will start promptly at 7 PM, concluding by 7:30 each evening.

The performance will feature five singers from our cast at last year's "pre-premiere" at the Williams College '62 Center, including Dashon Burton (of Roomful of Teeth) as Robert Moses, Eliza BaggTomás CruzLucy Dhegrae, and Christopher Herbert, with special video appearances by Rinde Eckert and Jonathan WoodyNOW Ensemble will reprise their role as the "orchestra," and David Bloom will continue to ably steer the ship as conductor and music director, a special challenge in this dynamic environment. 

Check out the notices in the New Yorker and the New York Times, which is about the River to River festival generally, but kindly gives us top billing.

Santa Rosalia - New York Baroque Incorporated

  • New York NY

Music written for the Santa Rosalia festivities in Palermo was often destroyed after the initial performance, underlining the ephemeral character of the event. Thanks to a repeat performance in Modena the year following its 1687 premiere, NYBI will resurrect and give the modern-day premiere of the monumental Santa Rosalia, one of four surviving oratorios by Bonaventura Alliotti. Soprano Johannette Zomer will star in the title role, Santa Rosalia.

Présentation

La Flûte enchantée se présente sous la forme d’un Singspiel en deux actes, une forme en marge de l’opéra italien, mêlant parties chantées et dialogues en allemand. Sa création le 30 septembre 1791 passe inaperçue dans la presse viennoise. Pourtant, le succès est considérable et l’œuvre est représentée une centaine de fois en moins d’un an ! Elle s’affiche comme un véritable chef-d’œuvre musical, se prêtant au jeu des mises en scène les plus complexes.

Car ce dernier opéra de Mozart est peut-être le plus célèbre. Il nous montre le jour qui triomphe de la nuit, le chemin qu’il faut suivre pour être digne de l’humanité. Les angles de lectures sont multiples et allégoriques : ils révèlent à la fois un conte, un rite d’initiation et un opéra symbolique.

C’est la première fois que Les Talens Lyriques s’adonneront à cet opéra mozartien, après La Betulia liberata, L’Enlèvement au sérail, Mitridate et Così fan tutte, dans une nouvelle production scénique de l’Opéra de Dijon.

Nouvelle production Opéra de Dijon. Coproduction Opéra de Limoges – Théâtre de Caen.

We move from the dark, meditative, "Dover Beach" to Wirén’s light and fluid Serenade, to the gravity of Eisler’s Serious Songs, with the stunning Dashon Burton as our vocal muse.
