Coming next – we’re heatedly planning an evening of Kurt Weill. Soprano Marcy Richardson and baritone Ian Greenlaw will join me and a wonderful handful of additional artists to bring New York audiences a cabaret chronology for two toasty Friday evenings in the Gershwin Hotel next month.
kurt weill uncovered: in cabaret
Two Fridays, February 11 and 18, 2011, both at 8pm, please join us. Check back here for more details on the repertoire as we flesh out the program. The postcard is here, and the press release, if you’d like to share them.
Still in the planning stages is the third in the series ‘HANDEL at the Gershwin,’ as well as an evening which will take a slice of an exciting opera-in-progress which operamission has commissioned and is developing, Antinous and Hadrian by Clint Borzoni, libretto by Edward Ficklin. If you’re curious about exactly what it takes to create a new opera, this is your chance. We will split open the process for you and show you each stage of this most complex of collaborations, while presenting a sneak preview of the music and libretto in its current state.
And fourthly, all this to roll us into a much-demanded return of the ‘Some Assembly Required’ fiasco. Who wants to guess which opera will be attempted? We’re thinking August of 2011…
Do stay tuned, obviously…
Happy New Year, and thank you for supporting operamission!
