In 2017, the Grammy Award-winning composer Herschel Garfein created the song cycle “Three Rides” for soprano Marnie Breckenridge, cello, and piano from K.C. Tromer’s poems. The first of the songs, “The Cyclone,” had its world premiere in New York as a part of the 2017 Five Boroughs Music Festival’s Five Borough Song Book, Volume II

This Brooklyn Art Song Society performance will be the world premiere for the full cycle.

Dorthea and Artemisia

Saturday, June 1, 2019 - 7:30 PM

Sunday, June 2, 2019 - 2:00 PM

We focus on the art and milieu of Italian painter Artemisia Gentileschi and Depression Era photographer Dorothea Lange, in two dramatic works with projected images that come to life. Laura Schwendinger’s new work tackles Gentileschi’s struggles and triumphs as she battles inequality and reveals hidden stories. Christopher Stark’s micro opera explores the lives of migrants fleeing the Dust Bowl.

TODAY IT RAINS

Today It Rains is a new chamber opera inspired by a real event in the life of American artist Georgia O’Keeffe (sung by Blythe Gaissert). On the rainy morning of April 29, 1929, O’Keeffe boarded a train in New York with fellow artist Rebecca Strand (sung by Marnie Breckenridge), leaving behind her tumultuous marriage with Alfred Stieglitz and yearning for escape and creative fulfillment. Three days later, she arrived for the first time in Santa Fe, New Mexico, inspired by the power of the area’s landscape and ready for new artistic experience. The 90-minute work that imagines this life event will be performed by a cast of eight singers and an instrumental ensemble of eleven, and will feature a sophisticated projection design, including ‘film arias’ created by Kimberly Reed and Brian Staufenbiel. While taking its inspiration from this singular artist’s journey, the story will resonate with anyone who seeks creative freedom and is transformed by the beauty of Nature. Today It Rains is a courageous woman’s story and an independent artist’s story. It is also a uniquely American story.
