Apollo & Dafne + Clarence & Anita, June 8-9, 2011

A double bill of Handel’s 1710 cantata
and the stage premiere of Ben Yarmolinsky’s 2010 opera
of the Clarence Thomas-Anita Hill story
Apollo & Dafne + Clarence & Anita comprises a pair of operas separated by 300 years, contrasting yet thematically related. The archetypal story of Apollo’s aggression toward Dafne, her escape via metamorphosis, and the laurel wreath woven from her limbs, is revisited from multiple perspectives as American mythology. John Scott leads Sinfonia NY in the Handel; Mark Shapiro conducts the C&A Band in the Yarmolinsky. Gina Crusco directs.
June 8-9, 2011 at 8 pm
