We regret to inform you that this performance is canceled. We hope to bring The No One's Rose to the Bing stage in a future season at Stanford Live.
In partnership with the American Modern Opera Company (AMOC) and Stanford Live, PBO brings the world premiere of a powerful production featuring new music by 2018 MacArthur Fellow Matthew Aucoin. The No One’s Rose has at its center the poetry of the poetry of Pulitzer Prize–winning poet Jorie Graham and 20th century poet and Holocaust survivor Paul Celan, both of whom ask a difficult question in their work: What can be recovered after a whole world disappears? AMOC and PBO's musicians and dancers join forces with some of today’s most important opera stars, directed by AMOC’s co-artistic director Zack Winokur and choreographer Bobbi Jene Smith. Anthony Roth Costanzo and Davóne Tines return to PBO, while Julia Bullock and Paul Appleby make their debuts.
One of the Bay Area’s greatest musical treasures, the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra plays classical and baroque jewels on period instruments. This season’s Bing performances include the world premiere of 2018 MacArthur Fellow Matthew Aucoin’s The No One's Rose, Georg Muffat’s Missa in labore requies, Mozart and Haydn from violinist Rachel Podger, and an evening of Tchaikovsky with PBO Music Director Richard Egarr.
Commissioned by Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra and Stanford Live, and generously supported by the Stanford Live Commissions and Programming Fund.
