BMOP and Odyssey Opera team up with Pentatone Music for The Lord of Cries, composer John Corigliano and librettist Mark Adamo's striking new opera. Weaving Bram Stoker's Dracula with Euripides's tragedy The Bacchae, Corigliano and Adamo lead the listener through a fever dream of ecstasy and ruin set in Victorian England.
This contemporary reimagining of timeless tales stars GRAMMY Award-winning countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo as the Lord of Cries, the supernatural, seductive Dionysus-cum-Dracula who confronts mortals with their true desires.
The recording of this performance, live from New England Conservatory's Jordan Hall, is now available for purchase from Pentatone.
