Bard College Conservatory of Music Graduate Vocal Arts Program and the Orchestra Now Present Rest in Pieces: In Memory of Opera
In Rest in Pieces, 14 beloved opera characters gather together at a funeral for a mutual friend, and find themselves forging a new, self-determined path that guides them to a realization of their dreams, relationships, and truths—all within the larger-than-life world of opera.
“What is wonderful about Rest in Pieces has been the process of creating this work as a group. Fourteen singers choosing five operas, choosing the music, then building scenes to tell a new, compelling story—all with the aim of creating performance and writing skill sets in an entirely new way. It is truly an extraordinary undertaking,” said Blythe, Vocal Arts Program artistic director. “Audiences can expect to see and hear characters and music that they already know and love, but they will experience them set free in an entirely new, self-determined world.”
