Spoleto Festival USA: John Adams's El Niño
College of Charleston Memminger Auditorium, 56 Beaufain St.

Friday 5/23/14 7 pm
Monday 5/26/14 7:30 pm
Friday 5/30/14 7:30 pm

Hailed as “a Messiah for the modern age” (Los Angeles Times), John Adams’s El Niño tells the nativity story with an unprecedented spotlight on the voices of women. Acclaimed British director John La Bouchardière draws inspiration for his imaginative production from the plays used by Franciscan monks in spreading the story of Jesus’s birth through Latin America. With a libretto including poems by Rosario Castellanos and Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz—two of Mexico’s greatest writers—Gospels from the Bible and the Apocrypha, and Martin Luther’s Christmas Sermon, Adams’s oratorio widens the lens to encounter and explore the inexhaustible miracle of birth. Director of Choral Activities Joe Miller conducts this stunning work.
Sung in English, Latin, and Spanish with English supertitles.

Composed by John Adams
Libretto adapted by John Adams and Peter Sellars
Directed by John La Bouchardière
Conducted by Joe Miller

College of Charleston Sottile Theatre, 44 George St.
Wednesday 5/28/14 8 pm

The program features Samuel Barber’s radiant Adagio for Strings and John Adams’s Doctor Atomic Symphony, a stirring symphonic adaptation of his 21st-century opera. Bela Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra is by turns playful, soulful, and exhilarating in its showcase of orchestral virtuosity.

Tickets/Details: See Spoleto Festival USA Website

Spoleto Festival USA: Leoš Janáček's Kát’a Kabanová
College of Charleston Sottile Theatre, 44 George St.

Saturday 5/24/14 7:30 pm
Thursday 5/29/14 8 pm
Saturday 5/31/14 4 pm
Monday 6/2/14 7:30 pm
Friday 6/6/14 8 pm

Sweeping in scope, Kát’a Kabanová is regarded as one of the great operas of the 20th century. Janáček’s shimmering music evoking the Volga River symbolizes the foreboding freedom that both attracts and terrifies Kát’a. Matched with a spineless husband and isolated by her tyrannical mother-in-law, Kát’a finds both freedom and excruciating guilt in the arms of another man. This glorious yet gritty score tells the turbulent story in moving scenes that undulate with fate and family. Garry Hynes, the Tony Award-winning artistic director of Irish theater company Druid, will make her directorial debut in opera, bringing her immense skill for storytelling to a new discipline; Anne Manson, who led the Spoleto Festival USA Orchestra concert in 2012, will conduct this tale of love, betrayal, and ultimate consequences.

Music and Libretto by Leoš Janáček
Directed by Garry Hynes
Conducted by Anne Manson
