Here is an article about the production of Franco Faccio’s Amleto that we are currently rehearsing at Opera Southwest. Ignore the photos.
Here’s a great resource on a rather fascinating opera that has not been fully produced since 1871: The Amleto Project
Yesterday, I made a long-anticipated trip to Caramoor to take in the Garden of Sonic Delights, curated by my good friend Stephan Moore. It was amazing in myriad ways, and I’m so glad that I was able to go. Pics and sound to follow soon. The exhibition runs through Novermber 2 – if you have the chance to go check it out, you will not regret it.
I’ll be playing the live accompaniment for Amleto (Hamlet), which has not been performed since 1871, under the baton of Anthony Barrese in its U.S. premiere at Baltimore Concert Opera on Oct. 2 and 5. I will also be the répétiteur for its fully-staged production with orchestra at Opera Southwest in Albuquerque, N.M – performances will be Oct. 26, 31, and Nov. 2.
