Center for Contemporary Opera: Outcast at the Gate - Symphony Space
June 14, 2019 - New York

Outcast at the Gate is a drama about refugees: a blind old man, supported by his daughter, seeking food and shelter. It is also a drama of redemption: the old man is "stained to the core of his existence," and at the same time somehow innocent: he is Oedipus, former king of Thebes, who has unwittingly killed his father and married his mother. The end will reveal him as a prophet, blind, but leading his daughters and the King of his new homeland to a miraculous appointment with the waiting Gods. The two refugees have found themselves in a beautiful, peaceful grove when a terrified stranger arrives and tells them to leave: the grove is sacred to the Furies, the horrifying deities of vengeance. But Oedipus knows that he has found his final home, and he offers prayers of thanks to the deities of the grove for the "great consummation" he knows is near. The townspeople arrive, searching for the imposter, and when they learn his name they order the strangers to leave their land. Oedipus insists that he is innocent, that he had committed his horrible crimes unknowingly, and the elders decide to summon the King of Athens, Theseus, for the final decision.

Leonard Bernstein Centennial Finale Concert: 'Dybbuk' and 'Fancy Free' (World Premiere of New Orchestrations) - The DiMenna Center for Classical Music
June 14, 2019 - New York

LOST DOG NEW MUSIC ENSEMBLE marks the Finale of the Leonard Bernstein Centennial in New York City, with the world premiere of new orchestrations of Bernstein's ballet scores 'Dybbuk' and 'Fancy Free'. Fancy Free (1944), about three sailors on leave in New York City during World War II, is a sparkling touchstone of Bernstein's jazzy, populist style, and of a young composer eager to show off his tremendous talent. Dybbuk (1974) is one of Bernstein's last major works, and one of his greatest achievements as a composer. At turns eerie, wild, and savage, this ballet about thwarted love and demonic possession is inspired by Kabbalistic numerology. The virtuosic score is very rarely heard; this will be the only concert performance during the Bernstein Centennial.
