Venus and Adonis/Savitri

John Blow's Venus and Adonis was originally a masque for the entertainment of King Charles II. The work was the first to have been written by a female librettist, Anne Finch, and tells the tale of Venus and the demise of her lover, Adonis.

Based on an episode in the Mahabharata, Gustav Holst's Savitri was innovative in its day and still mesmerizes. This production will honor the Indian culture which gave us this story and feature singers of South Asian heritage.

Enchantress/Bombay Rickey Meets the Psychology of Desire

Opera-Cabaret Presentation

Called “the future of music” (New York Music Daily), Bombay Rickey is a five-piece, Brooklyn-based band with a unique sound evocative of 1960s movie soundscapes. The group plays both covers and original music that borrow equally from the worlds of surf rock, cumbia, spaghetti Western, and Bollywood, balanced out with a "little" coloratura soprano. Bombay Rickey has become a fixture at the world-famous Brooklyn club Barbés, performed live on WFMU radio, and their music has been featured in a television commercial for Citibank. Their debut album, Cinefonia has been described as “brazen, cheeky and just downright spunky” (World Music Central).

Kamala Sankaram’s ENCHANTRESS is a 20 minute opera about Ada Lovelace, the inventor of the first computer, originally written under the auspices of American Lyric Theater’s Composer/Librettist Development Program.

About thirty minutes long, with a brief question and answer session, children learn and laugh at the same time!

Lesley Dill, one of the most prominent American artists working at the intersection of language, performance and fine art, has paired with composer Richard Marriott, Artistic Director and Founder of the acclaimed Clubfoot Orchestra, to create DIVIDE LIGHT - a new opera based on the text of Emily Dickinson. 

Language, or as Dickinson said “this Loved Philology”, is the core of our music, projections, and costumes in DIVIDE LIGHT. While much is made of Dickinson herself - her quiet life, her white dress - this brevity does not extend to her world of words. Her linguistic world is huge and wide-ranging; it is hungry and honest. From “some too fragile for winter winds” to “to be alive is Power”; from “I like a look of agony because I know it’s true” to “I think to live may be a bliss.”

With lavish costumes and striking projections, Dill says that DIVIDE LIGHT “is a story of the journey of the heart and soul. The story of the music, costumes, and video projections follow an arc of emotional metaphor: from Vulnerability, to Anguish, to Thoughtfulness, to Loneliness and Death, to Exultation, Exhilaration, Ecstasy and Immensity.”
