Philip Glass Festival: Madrigal Opera
April 28, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$35
About the Show
Written in 1980 and commissioned by the Holland Festival, this chamber opera is written for 6 voices, violin, and viola. “Madrigal Opera”, written for Dutch theater artist Rob Malasch, is conceived as an artful paradox: a music theatre work with no specific theatrical content. It was commissioned with the intent for creative interpretations by a theatrical director at hand, therefore differing itself from traditional opera form as it has no predetermined theatrical narrative. With NS Artist in Residence R. B. Schlather directing three outside the box performers – Vince Peterson leading Johnny Gandelsman and Choral Chameleon – the audience will engage in an unforgettable musical experience not to be missed.
