Today’s most thrilling performers join Marc A. Scorca, president/CEO of OPERA America, to talk about their pathways to the world’s greatest stages.

The 2017–2018 season sees Pérez’s return to the Bayerische Staatsoper for her role debut as Fiordiligi in Così fan tutte and Micaëla in Carmen. She will also sing the title role in Thaïs and Juliette in Roméo et Juliette at the Metropolitan Opera, in addition to Violetta in La traviata at the Staatsoper Berlin, Staatsoper Hamburg and Opernhaus Zürich.

National Sawdust
Workshop/Reading: Eva

Web Address: www.nationalsawdust.org
Start Time: 7:00PM

National Sawdust will hold a workshop presentation of Anna Clyne's "Eva," a new 75-minute opera scored for five vocalists, chamber orchestra, and electronics, with a libretto drawn from the recently published diaries of visual artist Eva Hesse, a pioneer in the post-minimalist arts movement of the 1960s. Taking place in her artist's loft, the opera takes audience members on a journey with Eva as she hurtles back in time to confront the pivotal artistic and personal moments of her tragically short life. In addition to Anna Clyne, the creative team includes librettists Kitty McNamee and Jocelyn Clarke; Clarke also serves as dramaturg.
National Sawdust
Workshop/Reading: Film Stills

Web Address:
Start Time: 7:00PM

The Film Stills project pairs each of four of Cindy Sherman's iconic Film Stills with a separate composition, commissioned by National Sawdust, that takes the audience into the world of each scene. Much like Sherman expanded the possibilities of using only one model in her work, the opera challenges conventional operatic musical texture by using only one voice - that of soprano Eve Gigliotti. This collaboration explores the world inside of the Film Stills through the use of both acoustic and amplified soundscapes in an intimate dramatic chamber music setting. Film Stills will feature new music composed by Missy Mazzoli, Nico Muhly, and Paola Prestini, with a libretto by Royce Vavrek and direction by R.B. Schlather.
