St. John Passion
By Johann Sebastian Bach
Featuring Michael Slattery, Jesse Blumberg, Adam Lau, Latonia Moore, Tamara Mumford, Ben Bliss,and Daniel Okulitch
With MasterVoices and New York Baroque Incorporated
Ted Sperling, Conductor
February 9, 2017 at 7pm
Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall

MasterVoices (formerly The Collegiate Chorale), celebrating its 75th anniversary during the 2016-2017 season, presents St. John Passion by Johann Sebastian Bach on February 9, 2017 at 7pm at Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall (57th Street and 7th Avenue, New York, NY 10019). The production will be conducted by MasterVoices' Artistic Director Ted Sperling and will feature the MasterVoices chorus, Michael Slattery, Jesse Blumberg, Adam Lau, Latonia Moore, Tamara Mumford, Ben Bliss, and Daniel Okulitch,with New York Baroque Incorporated.

Bach's magnificent choral masterpiece St. John Passion is considered by many to be more dramatic and expressive than his popular St. Matthew Passion. MasterVoices' presentation will feature its 150 voice chorus, an impressive cast of rising stars, and an ensemble of period instruments. To pay tribute to MasterVoices' founder Robert Shaw, who held the belief that the Passions should speak directly to audiences in English, and that these concerts should be communal experiences, the performance will be given in a modern-day English translation written by Michael Slattery (who will also sing the role of the Evangelist). MasterVoices invites all audience members to sing along with the chorales, and will provide ticket buyers with practice materials in advance.

St. John Passion tickets ($20-$130) on sale now at Carnegie Hall (carnegiehall.org | CarnegieCharge 212-247-7800 | Box Office at 57th and Seventh). MasterVoices Members are entitled to pre-sale access and discounts now. For tickets and more information, visit mastervoices.org.

the little OPERA theatre of ny
presents
The New York Premiere of
Carlisle Floyd's Prince of Players
Thursday and Friday at 7:30pm
Saturday at 8pm
Sunday at 3pm.
February 23-26, 2017
The Kaye Playhouse at Hunter College


The little OPERA theatre of ny (LOTNY) will produce the New York Premiere of Carlisle Floyd's Prince of Players at the Kaye Playhouse at Hunter College, East 68th Street between Park and Lexington Avenues from February 23-26, 2017. Performances: Thursday and Friday at 7:30pm, Saturday at 8pm, Sunday at 3pm.

Set in 17th Century Restoration England during the reign of King Charles II, Prince of Players follows the story of Edward Kynaston, a Shakespearean actor famous for his performances of the female roles in the Bard's plays. When the King grants permission for women to appear onstage, and forbids male actors from continuing to appear in female roles, Kynaston must relearn his entire craft or face the end of his career. Adapted from Jeffrey Hatcher's play A Compleat Female Stage Beauty and the subsequent 2004 film Stage Beauty, this new American opera with music and libretto by Carlisle Floyd was commissioned by the Houston Grand Opera. It received its world premiere this past March 2016 at the HGO Studio, and since, the composer has slightly revised the sections of the piece. The new version will be heard for the first time in this production.

Tickets are $45(limited advance student tickets for $15)and are available through the Hunter College Box Office at (212) 772-4448 or at www.hunter.cuny.edu/kayeplayhouse/tickets.

Works & Process at the Guggenheim Announces
Washington National Opera: Champion by Terence Blanchard
Sunday, February 12, 2017 at 7:30pm
The Guggenheim Museum


On Sunday, February 12, 2017 at 7:30pm, Works & Process at the Guggenheim presents excerpts from Champion by five-time Grammy award-winning musician and playwright Terence Blanchard, who tells the true story of Emile Griffith in his haunting and visually stunning "opera in jazz." The work, which blew critics away when it premiered in 2013, explores the life of the closeted gay boxer whose knockout of a homophobic rival in the early 1960s let to unexpected tragedy. Washington National Opera Artistic Director Francesca Zambello will moderate a discussion with Blanchard, Deynce Graves and other members of the cast following performance excerpts.

Blanchard's opera will open anew with Washington National Opera at the Kennedy Center's Opera House in Washington, DC on March 4, 2017. Of the 2013 premiere, The New York Times said Champion "strikes a resonant chord," while the Chicago Tribune called it "a new work of quality and staying power."

Tickets & Venue
$40, $35 Guggenheim members and Friends of Works & Process.
$10 Student Rush Tickets available one hour prior to each performance (if space allows, for students under 25 with valid ID).
Box Office (212) 423-3575, (M-F, 1-5pm) or online at worksandprocess.org
