La Bohème Warhola

to Jul 19

La Bohème Warhola

Re-imagine the antics and love affairs of four ‘Bohemian’ artists, set not in a nineteenth-century Parisian garret, but instead in the revolutionary artsy world of 1960s New York. Maybe even imagine it set in The Factory, the tin foil-covered loft where Andrew Warhola became Andy Warhol, the father of pop art as well as an artistic symbol of a new era.

This production is inspired by Andy and created by an innovative New York-based team. They will transform Puccini’s fabulous opera, in a radical, intimate, modern metamorphosis… but Puccini’s heart will still beat as strongly and his music sing as truly and unmistakably as ever.

Sung in English with projected titles in English.

Hatuey: Memory of Fire

  • Alexander Kasser Theater (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Making its American premiere at Peak Performances at Montclair State University, Hatuey: Memory of Fire is a soaring Cuban-Yiddish opera, a love story set in a Havana nightclub in 1931. Oscar, a young Jewish writer who escaped the pogroms in the Ukraine to make a new home in Cuba, falls in love with Tinima, a beautiful singer and passionate revolutionary of Taino descent. As Oscar pens an epic poem about Cuba’s legendary 16th century freedom fighter, Hatuey, Tinima draws him into her fight against the corrupt Machado regime. This vibrant fusion of Afro-Cuban and Yiddish music and culture is also a powerful celebration of freedom.

The 2017 Gabby Awards: Honoring the Journey

The Gabby Awards is the Greek America Foundation’s signature biennial event. This year, guests will be taken on an emotional journey of the Greek experience in America from the arrival over a century ago at Ellis Island to our arrival at Carnegie Hall as one of the most important components of the great fabric of North American multiculturalism. Through our awards honoring Greek America’s Best and Brightest, as well as a beautiful collection of music, theatrics and vocal performances, the Gabby Awards at Carnegie Hall will continue to live up to its reputation as Greek North America’s premiere awards gala.

All proceeds from the Gabby Awards benefit academic and humanitarian programs of the Greek America Foundation, including the award-winning Project Hope for Greece campaign.

OperaComp

The Opera-Composer Collaborative Project, or OperaComp, is a collective of theater artists and musicians dedicated to giving voice to the future of the American opera theater, today. This interdisciplinary laboratory for developing brand new opera combines the forces of composers, playwrights, directors, singers, actors, instrumentalists, and designers under one roof. Here we cultivate a unique, collaborative process of devising new work together from page to stage. OperaComp provides a home for artists and audiences of a new generation to share the complex, diverse human stories of our time, challenging age-old stereotypes about the art form.

Our inaugural season launches in the spring of 2017 with a semester-long residency in New York City featuring students and alumni from The Juilliard School, NYU, and Columbia University, which will culminate in a performance of six world premiere opera scenes crafted by six unique collaborative teams. There will be two performances, one in the afternoon and one in the evening.

Flight

Juilliard Opera opens their season with the 20th century English opera Flight—Jonathan Dove’s breakthrough modern-day operatic comedy that tells the story of a refugee living in the airport and his interactions with different characters who find themselves delayed in the terminal. Inspired by the true-life story of an Iranian refugee who lived at Charles de Gaulle Airport, Paris for 18 years, Flight “can be summed up in one word: charm. It is sensationally orchestrated…instantly beguiling” (The Times).
