BMOP slinks into a new fall season with a spooky new opera by John Corigliano. Corgliano's The Lord of Cries, with a libretto by Mark Adamo, reimagines the timeless tragedy The Bacchae by Euripides through the lens of Bram Stoker's classic horror story Dracula. Featuring countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo as the seductive and deceptive Dionysus, tickets are on sale now for the East Coast premiere of Lord of Cries.
Join BMOP/sound on a musical journey inspired by the age of the troubadours through late Romanticism and into twenty-first century string music on our latest release John Corigliano: To Music. Guitar soloist Eliot Fisk joins BMOP in performing award-winning music from John Corigliano.
From composer Roger Reynolds, who pioneered sound spatialization, intermedia, and algorithmic concepts, Roger Reynolds: Violin Works comprises three violin concertos written over a 15-year span. Featuring longtime BMOP member Gabriela Díaz as soloist, this disc explores what Reynolds calls the violin's "multifaceted voice."
Gail Kubik's Pulitzer Prize-winning Symphony Concertante anchors the latest release on BMOP/sound featuring BMOP regular Terry Everson as trumpet soloist, BMOP favorite Vivian Choi as piano soloist, and introducing viola soloist Jing Peng. Percussionist Robert Schulz and narrator Frank Kelley shine in the concert version of the score to the Oscar-winning cartoon Gerald McBoing Boing, written by Dr. Seuss, and two Divertimenti inspired by Kubik's work in film music round out Gail Kubik: Symphony Concertante.
