Show Info

Operas by Carlisle Floyd in new chamber arrangements by Inessa Zaretsky (Slow Dusk) and Raymond J. Lustig (Markheim)
Conducted by Richard Cordova
Directed by Philip Shneidman
with a company of sixteen

The little OPERA theatre of ny (Opportunity Makes The Thief, The Reformed Drunkard) triumphantly returns to 59E59 with two one-act operas by the great American composer Carlisle Floyd, in brand new chamber arrangements.
Floyd's very first opera, Slow Dusk is the story of an impoverished young woman whose dreams are challenged by religious and family obligations. Markheim is a man of privilege who has squandered his family fortune. Desperate for money, he is pursued by demons both real and imagined. Can a murder on Christmas Eve be disguised? Based upon a thrilling story by Robert Louis Stevenson, the opera examines human nature pushed to its extreme.
