Center for Contemporary Opera presents a double bill:
Anon by Errollyn Wallen and Four Sisters by Elena Langer
CCO continues its Development Series by featuring works in progress of two of the United Kingdom's top composers: Elena Langer and Errollyn Wallen.
Ms. Lenger's comic opera, "Four Sisters" is the modern tale of four wealthy Park Avenue sisters who opine on how they will fund their dreams with their father's inheritance. Ms. Wallen's work, "Anon", is a modern version of the classic tale Manon Lescaut.
We are happy to welcome back Lidiya Yankovskaya as our music director and we welcome Nicole Haran as our stage director. This will be Nicole's debut with CCO. We have a great cast lined-up as well.
This is a unique opportunity to hear these works in New York. As with all of our ateliers, there will be an opportunity to meet the cast and creative team following the program and offer your feedback. We look forward to seeing you on January 20th.
Wine reception to follow!
