View Website

This recital marks the debut of Veils for Desire, created by members of the American Modern Opera Company, an exciting new collective of some of today's most gifted, curious, and innovative artists and recently named one of "19 for 19 Artists to Watch" by WQXR. Built around Britten's dramatic canticle Abraham and Isaac, the program features works that "veil" or transform an unspeakable desire into a new, mysterious form. Also included are songs composed specifically for each of these extraordinary singers, including a world premiere by Harold Meltzer and music by AMOC Co-Artistic Director and 2018 MacArthur Fellow Matthew Aucoin. "[American Modern Opera Company is] … astonishing … a powerful counterforce" — The Los Angeles Times Artists Anthony Roth Costanzo, countertenor Paul Appleby, tenor Matthew Aucoin, piano
