NYCO’s New Season

NYC Opera just announced their 2013/2014 season, and the modern British invasion of the New York opera scene, begun this season with the double-feature of Adès operas at NYCO and the Met, continues with the American premiere of Mark-Anthony Turnage‘s 2011 Royal Opera House -commissioned Anna Nicole.

(Yes, that Anna Nicole.)  The production, a co-production with the Brooklyn Academy of Music, will open their 2013 Next Wave Festival of new art.  Predictably, the original production got mixed reviews.  But I’m kind of morbidly curious?  Here are the first 10 minutes on YouTube if you want more of a teaser (there is a DVD too).

After that, NYCO will exhibit some of that operatic whiplash I love so much by going back to the 18th century to present another American premiere, of Johann Christian Bach‘s 1772 Endimione.

    • haha, good one! and that’s not even getting into the rest of their season, with duke bluebeard’s castle & the marriage of figaro providing some lesser whiplash all their own! but that’s how i like my opera seasons, just a bit scattershot…
