COMING FALL 2017

In 19th-century Edinburgh, the public anatomy dissections of the renowned Dr. Robert Knox were popular and prosperous—but fresh bodies were scarce. The Nefarious, Immoral but Highly Profitable Enterprise of Mr. Burke & Mr. Hare follows the gruesome, true tale of two ordinary men who discovered they could turn a pretty penny through murder, and of the good doctor who looked the other way. All told, Burke and Hare smothered more than a dozen victims, selling the bodies to Dr. Knox’s school, before they were caught and convicted in a trial that riveted the United Kingdom.

 

Julian Grant

Composer Julian Grant says he was intrigued by the challenges of making Burke and Hare sing, and felt the story lent itself to being told with deathly humor—and a touch of vaudeville. “Five victims are central characters in our story,” Grant says. “They interact with the living, adding a level of pathos and sympathy to the all-pervading villainy.”

 

Mark Campbell

Librettist Mark Campbell says the themes of the opera resonate deeply today. “I was attracted to the real story of Burke and Hare because it occurs in a morally upended world—not unlike our own—where profit is pitted against science, and greed against good. Adding a good deal of mordant humor to a potentially grim tale helps engage the audience with the story.”

Campbell wrote the libretto for Silent Night (2012), which won the Pulitzer Prize that year for composer Kevin Puts, and recently completed Minnesota Opera’s world premiere of The Shining, based on Stephen King’s horror novel. Grant is the composer of more than 18 operas, including works for English National Opera, the Royal Opera and others.

Hansel - HANSEL UND GRETEL

August 18, 19, 25 and 26 

Composed by Engelbert Humperdinck
Libretto by Adelheid Wette, based on the Grimm brothers’  fairy tale “Hansel and Gretel”
World premiere at Hoftheater in Weimar on 23 December, 1893

Hänsel und Gretel will be performed in German with English supertitles

DIRECTOR Karen Coe Miller

CONDUCTOR Kostis Protopapas

Synopsis, Act I:
Once upon a time a poor broom-maker and his wife lived in a lonesome cottage in the Harz Mountains with their little son, Hänsel, and daughter, Gretel. When our story opens, the father and mother have gone away to sell brooms in the neighboring villages, leaving the children at work in the house. But work is tiresome, especially when empty stomachs are clamoring for unattainable goodies: finally the youthful pair start romping about the room, and at the height of their frolic the mother enters, weary from her long trip and unhappy because she has been unable to sell her wares. She scolds the children, and sends them out into the forest to pick wild strawberries for supper. Late that evening the father returns, having disposed of his brooms at a good profit, and gaily unpacks a quantity of dainties; then, missing the children, he asks after them, and is horror-stricken at the thought of their pitiful plight all alone after nightfall in the woods.

Act II
The children, roaming through the woods, gradually fill their baskets with strawberries; heedless of direction and time, eventide finds them bewildered in the darkening forest haunted, as they have been taught to believe, by fairies and witches. The steep, rocky bulk of the Ilsenstein, a reputed gathering-place for evil sprites, looms up amid the trees; the wind whispers and moans uncannily, and shadowy bush and hollow take on strange and fearful shapes. The frightened children cower together beneath a spreading tree, and repeat their usual bedtime prayer to the “fourteen guardian angels,” after which, calmer in spirit, they fall asleep with a fairy vision of the radiant angels floating around them.

Act III

Daybreak. The children awake, refreshed by a good night’s sleep, and sing merrily. All at once they notice an object overlooked in the evening darkness—a beautiful little house built of all manner of good things to eat, and giving off a most appetizing odor. This is, alas! The abode of a wicked witch, an ogress who entraps small boys and girls by her spells, pops them into her oven, and bakes them into delectable gingerbread, upon which she fares. Hänsel and Gretel approach the house and begin to break off tasty morsels from the walls; the witch appears and in due course casts a spell over them to prevent their escape; she now shuts Hänsel up in a sort of cage and feeds him on sweets to fatten him; then she tries to entice Gretel to bend down in front of the oven, so that she may be able to push her in and bake her; but Gretel pretends not to understand, and when the witch herself crossly bends down to show her how, the two children quickly shove her into the oven, bang the door shut, and dance around gleefully. Thereupon, all gingerbread shapes that formed the hedge around the witch’s house are transformed—her spell being broken—into their rightful shapes of happy boys and girls who thank Hänsel and Gretel for their deliverance; then the father and mother, who have been seeking their dear ones, burst upon the scene, and all winds up with a chorus of thanksgiving.

Ensemble - SONG FROM THE UPROAR

JULY 17, 18, 19 & 21 | 7:30 P.M.
ARONOFF CENTER | FIFTH THIRD BANK THEATER
SPECIAL COLLABORATION WITH CONCERT:NOVA

Music by Missy Mazzoli
Libretto by Royce Vavrek

Sung in English
Performance length: 1 hour and 20 minutes
There will be no intermission.

Along with the acclaimed ensemble concert:nova, we're pleased to present our first work by a female composer—the boundary-breaking Missy Mazzoli—and librettist Royce Vavrek. Inspired by the fascinating salvaged journals of early-twentieth-century explorer Isabelle Eberhardt, the 2012 chamber opera has been called “powerful” (The Wall Street Journal) and “a captivating multimedia spectacle” (The New York Times). Singing Isabelle Eberhardt is the performer who created the role, Abigail Fischer, praised by the Los Angeles Times as “enthralling…one of the rising stars of new music."

Isabelle Eberhardt was born in 1877 in Geneva, Switzerland. At age 21, after the death of her father, mother, and brother in quick succession, she travelled alone to Algeria. She dressed as a man, converted to Islam, and joined a Sufi order, roamed the desert on horseback, and fell in love with an Algerian soldier. After surviving an attempted assassination and a failed suicide pact with her lover, Isabelle drowned in a desert flash flood at age 27.

Her journals were salvaged from the wreckage. This is her song.

Her soul yearned for freedom.

As a student, Frida spurned the taunts of the other girls, turning instead to the politics of the revolutionaries. When a near-fatal bus accident kept her bedridden, she found her own path to freedom in her paintings. Through love, pain, tragedy, and ultimately death, Frida’s identity and art remain a fierce cry of independence.

Based on the life of iconic Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, Robert Xavier Rodríguez’s 1991 opera is as “emphatic and bold” (Opera News) as the artist herself. Our production from Michigan Opera Theatre was praised by the Detroit Free Press for its “dramatic intensity and immediacy.” Singing the title role is Catalina Cuervo, whose performance won rave reviews: “Cuervo doesn’t just play the role, she embodies it. Never was there any doubt that she was Kahlo personified” (The Detroit News).

Vocal Apprentice - VMAC

VMAC (the Vermont Music and Arts Center) is a workshop for serious amateur musicians who would like to play chamber music in an informal and congenial atmosphere - to "take a vacation with music." Participants in VMAC are automatically members of the Vermont Music and Arts Association (VMAA). The members elect a governing board, which administers the Center.

At home we may not have the right combination of good players for larger works or unusual instrumentation, but VMAC provides winds, singers, strings, pianos, harpsichord, and an extensive music library. It gives us the opportunity to revisit works we have studied in other workshops, and to introduce other musicians to our lesser-known favorites. Most participants play with a great many others and encounter a wealth of new pieces as well as the old favorites.

The Center maintains a library of over 1000 performing editions of chamber music, from baroque to contemporary, for strings, winds, keyboard, and voice.

Javotte - MANON

Jules Massenet / Manon

EVENING SHOWS June 25 | July 5 | July 8 | July 16
SUNDAY MATINEES July 3

Opéra comique in five acts
Libretto by Henri Meilhac and Philippe Gille after Antoine-François Prévost’s novel L’histoire du chevalier des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut
First performance: Paris; Opéra Comique (Salle Favart), January 19, 1884
Performed in French with English supertitles above the stage

Jules Massenet wrote several stylish, witty and genuinely beautiful operas, but it is Manon for which he is best remembered today. Based on Prevost's novel L'histoire du chevalier des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut, the opera tells the story of the impulsive Manon, who falls in love with the young student des Grieux. But since Manon also longs for luxury and excitement, she foolishly cannot resist when the rich nobleman De Brétigny offers to make her his mistress. Her choice between young love and the allure of life’s unavoidable temptations has made for a timeless tale, often retold through ballet, theatre and the visual arts. The role of Manon is one of the greatest lures for a singing actress, and audience favorite Sydney Mancasola returns to DMMO in the title role.

Puccini’s poetic masterpiece La Bohème, October 2-11, is reimagined against the electrifying backdrop of the 1968 Paris student revolution. Inspired by the films of the French New Wave, this theatrically and musically vivid new production transports one of the world’s greatest love stories to a mythological Paris, fueled by sexual liberation, intense passion, and burning idealism.
