I am beyond delighted to be joining this beautiful, and devastating production of Bluebeard’s Castle!
“Bartok’s riveting chamber opera is given new life in this production from England’s Theatre of Sound. In a departure from the original folktale, a husband and wife deal with the implications of dementia. Instead of doors masking Bluebeard’s true soul, the audience encounters Judith’s fraught relationship with her memories and its effect on her husband.
Sung in English in a newly-commissioned translation, the production features a stellar cast including internationally renowned singers Susan Bullock and Michael Mayes in the principal roles of Duke Bluebeard and Judith. Players from the Atlanta Opera Orchestra will be featured in a new chamber orchestration.”
Bluebeard’s Castle is onstage at Morgan Hall at the Bobbie Bailey & Family Performing Arts Center at Kennesaw State University October 7-9. For tickets and times, please go here.
