The Long Version:

This September, the marvelous folks at Opera Philadelphia are going to premiere a new Gothic murder mystery opera called Elizabeth Cree, by the Pulitzer Prize-winning team of composer Kevin Puts and librettist Mark Campbell, and starring mezzo-soprano Daniela Mack in the title role (she was literally described by The Telegraph as “a purringly elegant BMW of a singer”).

Because there’s no better place to hear Gothic murder mystery than in a Gothic Crypt, we’re going to be giving a special sneak preview of the music from the opera, featuring Maestro Puts at the piano, and Daniela and tenor Joseph Gaines (who’ll be singing the role of an old-time Music Hall star) singing some arias from the piece. Librettist Mark Campbell will also be on hand to speak about the piece with Kevin.

In addition to the Elizabeth Cree preview, we’ll also get to hear Daniela and Joseph perform some additional music from Benjamin Britten, Francis Poulenc and Henry Purcell – all of which will fit seamlessly into the overall mood of “creepy-sounding and death-related.”

So come join us for what’s sure to be an extraordinary, hair-raising evening of music-making.

The Short Version:

Get an exclusive first listen to one of the most highly-anticipated new operas of the year, performed by three extraordinary talents.
