Works & Process, the performing arts series at the Guggenheim, presents The Santa Fe Opera: The Thirteenth Child by Poul Ruders and Becky and David Starobin, with Darko Tresnjak and Rita Ryack on Sunday, April 7, 2019 at 7:30pm.


 

The composer of The Handmaid's Tale, Poul Ruders, takes you behind the scenes of his latest work, The Thirteenth Child. Explore this new opera with Ruders, librettists Becky and David Starobin, director Darko Tresnjak, and costume designer Rita Ryack in anticipation of its world premiere at The Santa Fe Opera. A "down-to-the-wire" thriller inspired by the Brothers Grimm, this fairy tale begins when a paranoid king banishes his twelve sons in favor of Lyra, the thirteenth child. When Princess Lyra learns about her long-lost brothers, she embarks on a quest to find them, starting on an adventure with an enchanted forest, riddles, a handsome prince, a horrible mistake, and a nearly-impossible feat for Princess Lyra to perform if everything is to be put right. The creators will discuss their artistic process and highlights will be performed.

Works & Process at the Guggenheim 
Described by The New York Times as "an exceptional opportunity to understand something of the creative process," for over 34 years and in over 500 productions, New Yorkers have been able to see, hear, and meet the most acclaimed artists in the world, in an intimate setting unlike any other. Works & Process, the performing arts series at the Guggenheim, has championed new works and offered audiences unprecedented access to generations of leading creators and performers. Most performances take place in the Guggenheim's intimate Frank Lloyd Wright-designed 285-seat Peter B. Lewis Theater. In 2017, Works & Process established a new residency and commissioning program, inviting artists to create new works, made in and for the iconic Guggenheim rotunda. worksandprocess.org.
