BMOP/sound has two CD releases this month! Beginning with Avner Dorman: Siklòn, this disc collects five orchestral works spanning 20 years of Dorman's compositional output. Lee Hoiby: The Italian Lesson features two chamber operas for mezzo-soprano, showcasing longtime BMOP collaborator Janna Baty as a harried mid-century housewife and soloist Vanessa Schukis as the great Julia Child—with an actual cake recipe!
BMOP/sound's latest release collects all three collaborations between Spanish-born composer Carlos Surinach and iconic American choreographer Martha Graham. Featuring the world premiere orchestral recordings of Acrobats of God, The Owl and the Pussycat, and Embattled Garden, this disc is a snapshot of mid-century ballet music.
BMOP and Odyssey Opera present Tobias Picker’s powerful new opera Awakenings, based on the memoir by Dr. Oliver Sacks. Tickets are on sale now!
Anthony Davis interweaves Stravinsky- and Berg-like harmony with jazz idioms and improvisation to create a truly American opera with a monumental subject: Malcolm X. X: The Life and Times of Malcolm X tells the story of the twentieth century Civil Rights Movement icon with a stellar cast led by bass-baritone Davóne Tines and conductor Gil Rose, backed by the BMOP orchestra and Odyssey Opera Chorus.
