New Camerata Opera presents Benjamin Britten’s masterpiece, The Rape of Lucretia
The Flea Theater on May 2, 4 and 5, 2019. Directed by Bea Goodwin, this rendering of the tragic story will confront the harsh reality of a woman’s experience with rape, suppression, and being silenced by men. This production will include a deaf actress to mirror the sung role of Lucretia. ASL will serve as a megaphone to further amplify the contours of Lucretia’s powerful story. Maestro Justin Bischof will lead the Modus Opera Orchestra in the performance of this groundbreaking score.
All-French solo recital with Marina Iwao
The ventures of Debussy and Ravel into impressionism and the responsive compositional output from Les Six produced a flowering of innovative and compelling wind music.
The clarinet chapter of 20th century French music is saturated with tonal nuance and trademark French lyricism at their finest. In addition to the well-known nonpareils composed by Debussy, Poulenc, Messiaen, and Ravel, there is a vast underground of forgotten gems by lesser known masters: Bozza, Cahuzac, and Pierné. While these latter pieces are mainstays of the clarinet repertoire, they are largely unknown by wider audiences. Clarinetist Sam Boutris and pianist Marina Iwao will provide a fresh look at these unjustifiably unheralded treasures. Commentary by Michael J. Gilligan.
