Rockport Opera House, Rockport
The World Premiere of a Bay Chamber commissioning project, Marriage Suites features musical snapshots of married life in the twentieth century. The pieces offer excerpts from the operas 27 (Ricky Ian Gordon), Breaking the Waves (Missy Mazzoli), and JFK (David T. Little) reimagined for string quartet and voices. The librettist for each of these works is the masterful Royce Vavrek.
Marriage Suites will be performed by three eminent opera stars, soprano Marnie Breckenridge, mezzo-soprano Eve Gigliotti and baritone John Moore, with the Aeolus Quartet.
Don’t miss the conversation with the composers and librettist on Wednesday August 19 at 3PM in Union Hall.
