An event every month that begins at 4:00 pm on day Fourth of the month, repeating until Saturday, June 26, 2021
The Santa Fe Opera and New Mexico PBS (NMPBS) present an original iCOLORES! broadcast series on the making of John Corigliano and Mark Adamo’s new opera The Lord of Cries. From Page to Stage offers an inside, multi-part view on the creative forces behind the Santa Fe Opera’s 17th world premiere, scheduled to open on July 17 as part of the 64th Festival Season.
All episodes will be broadcast locally on NMPBS channel 5.1, and will stream online at nmpbs.org and santafeopera.org. Each episode will be rebroadcast the Friday following its premiere at 8 pm MDT on WORLD channels 5.4 and 9.1.
The Lord of Cries is based on the intersection between two classics of Western literature, The Bacchae of Euripides and Dracula by Bram Stoker. Separated by 24 centuries, The Bacchae and Dracula tell virtually the same timeless story, with the same subversive message: We must honor our animal nature lest it turn monstrous and destroy us. The Lord of Cries begins with a strange, androgynous god returning to earth to offer a mortal three chances to “ask for what you want” or risk the consequences. He materializes in Victorian England in the guise of the eponymous “Lord of Cries,” none other than the irresistible antihero of Dracula. Corigliano creates powerfully contrasting sound worlds to distinguish the tidy world of the Victorians against the savage grandeur of the immortals, forging musical drama from the tension and the gravitational pull between the two worlds.
This event is generously sponsored by the Bank of Albuquerque.
