(New York, NY) Collaborative Stages and The Orpheus Project are proud to announce a new production of Ricky Ian Gordon’s Orpheus and Euridice. Directed by Brian Letchworth, this staged production of the popular song cycle will run June 2-12, 2011 at the Duo Multicultural Arts Center in Manhattan. This co-production of Orpheus and Euridice will be the first New York City production of this beautiful song cycle since it’s premiere at Lincoln Center in 2005.
Completed in 2001, Ricky Ian Gordon’s hour-long song cycle Orpheus and Euridice is the most recent interpretation of the Orphic myth by a major composer. The text, which he wrote himself, is at once timeless and highly personal. The music is epic in scope while still maintaining the blend of modern art music and popular musical theatre for which Mr. Gordon is so well-known. In his setting of the tale, told by the soprano as she recounts a dream she had, Orpheus is represented by the clarinet, who speaks in music through his instrument. Labeled by the composer as a dramatic song cycle, Orpheus and Euridice was intended to be presented not only through music, but also through movement and stagecraft.
Orpheus and Euridice features an impressive ensemble of talented musicians: Heather Dudenbostel, soprano, Ryan Dudenbostel, clarinet and Jad Bernardo, piano.
Orpheus & Euridiceis directed by Brian Letchworth and produced by Sarah Jane Arnegger for Collaborative Stages. The Production staff includes Dan Jobbins, Lighting Designer;, Zhuojie Chen, Video and ProjectionDesigner;, and Gabriella Senatore, Assistant Stage Manager. The Production Supervisor is Griffin Parker.
