Opera Fusion Fall 2015: Shalimar the Clown.

CCM, Cincinnati Opera and Opera Theatre of Saint Louis Stream Excerpts from ‘Shalimar the Clown’ on Dec. 8

CCM and Cincinnati Opera awarded the fall 2015 Opera Fusion: New Works residency to the new American opera Shalimar the Clown, which will have its world premiere at Opera Theatre of Saint Louis on June 11, 2016. Composed by Jack Perla to a libretto by Rajiv Joseph, and adapted from the Salman Rushdie novel, the opera was workshopped from Oct. 7 -17, with a free public performance of excerpts on Oct. 17 at the Transept in Over-the-Rhine. The workshop was directed by James Robinson, artistic director at Opera Theatre of Saint Louis, who will also direct the mainstage premiere, and conducted by Roberto Kalb, the resident assistant conductor at Opera Theatre of Saint Louis.

On Tuesday, December 8, a recording of that live performance will stream online, one time only, at 3 p.m. Eastern/2 p.m. Central. To watch, visit livestream.com/cincinnatiopera/ShalimartheClown.

Artists featured in the workshop performance include instrumentalists Javad Butah (tabla) and Hans Utter (sitar), and singers Brandon Scott Russell, Andrea Wells, Tyler Alessi, Christian Pursell, Chelsea Melamed, Ann Toomey, Kayleigh Decker, Blake Lampton, Vernon Hartman, Robert Stahley and Ben Lee.

About Shalimar the Clown
Shalimar the Clown tells the story of Shalimar and his beloved Boonyi, who have grown up together in a pastoral Kashmiri village, making people laugh as acrobats and dancers in a traditional folk theater. Though one is Muslim and one is Hindu, they fall in love—and despite all odds, their village embraces their marriage. But when a new American ambassador sees Boonyi dance, dark clouds gather. The promise of a new life tears their love apart and sends Shalimar down a path of revenge.

About Opera Fusion: New Works
Opera Fusion: New Works, a unique collaboration between Cincinnati Opera and CCM’s Department of Opera, was created in 2011 to foster the development of new American operas. The program offers composers or composer/librettist teams the opportunity to workshop an opera during a 10-day residency in Cincinnati, utilizing the talent, personnel, and facilities of both organizations. The workshops are cast with a combination of CCM students and professional artists, and each workshop concludes with a public performance. The program is led by co-artistic directors Marcus Küchle, Director of Artistic Operations of Cincinnati Opera, and Robin Guarino, the J. Ralph Corbett Distinguished Chair of Opera at CCM. Opera Fusion: New Works is generously funded by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

In 2011, Opera Fusion: New Works awarded its first workshop to composer Douglas J. Cuomo and librettist John Patrick Shanley in support of their new opera Doubt, which premiered at Minnesota Opera in January 2013. In 2012, Opera Fusion: New Works provided workshops for Champion, by composer Terence Blanchard and librettist Michael Cristofer, which premiered at Opera Theatre of Saint Louis in June 2013; and Morning Star, by composer Ricky Ian Gordon and librettist William M. Hoffman, which premiered at Cincinnati Opera in June 2015. In 2013, the residency went to Fellow Travelers, by composer Gregory Spears and librettist Greg Pierce, which will have its world premiere at Cincinnati Opera on June 17, 2016. In 2014, the program invited composer Jake Heggie and librettist Terrence McNally to workshop Great Scott, which premiered at The Dallas Opera on October 30, 2015. For the final workshop of the original six-workshop grant, the residency was awarded to Meet John Doe, with music and libretto by the late Daniel Catán. The first workshop of the second six-opera grant cycle was given in October 2015 to Shalimar the Clown.

CCM's acclaimed Wind Orchestra.

CCM’s Wind Series Honors American Icon Leonard Bernstein, the Art of the American Symphony and More This Fall

Composer, conductor, author and pianist Leonard Bernstein.

Composer, conductor, author and pianist Leonard Bernstein.

CCM’s Department of Wind Studies turns its spotlight on the American composer this fall. From Sept. 21 through Dec. 3, CCM’s Wind Orchestra, Wind Ensemble and Chamber Players present a variety of exciting concerts, including several free performances.

Under the direction of Professor Glenn D. Price, the CCM Wind Orchestra opens its season at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 25, with a celebration of American icon Leonard Bernstein, featuring music from West Side StoryCandide and more.

“It’s hard to believe that it was almost exactly 24 years ago that he passed away,” Price observes. “I was studying at Tanglewood at the time, in no small part because he was going to be there. He conducted what turned out to be his final two concerts for us, in the Shed with the Tanglewood Orchestra, and two days later with the BSO.”

Price honors this American legend with a program of some of Bernstein’s most popular compositions, including Slava, “Suite” from Candide, “Profanation” from Symphony No. 1, ”A Simple Song” from Mass and “Symphonic Dances” from West Side Story.

“I am using this opportunity to enlighten our students who were born into a post-Bernstein world about the richness that he provided to many of us. Visiting his music in depth is a great luxury, and one that I hope is meaningful for them,” explains Price.

Following this touching tribute, Price constructs his very own “American Symphony” at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 24, in Corbett Auditorium, taking pieces from four symphonies by four American composers – Vittorio Giannini, John Barnes Chance, Ingolf Dahl and James Barnes – and creating a new musical mosaic from their works.

The Winds Orchestra Series closes with “War and Peace,” a bombastic evening of Barber’s Commando March, Rautaavara’s A Soldier’s Mass, Gilmore’s Five Folksongs for Soprano, Husa’s Music for Prague 1968 and Reed’s Rejoicing in the Beauty of Peace at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 3, in Corbett Auditorium.

CCM’s Wind Ensemble and Chamber Players offer even more opportunities to experience the music of American composers Steve Reich, Eric Whitacre, Michael Kevin Daugherty and more this fall in a series of free concerts. See below for detailed program information.
