Over the first weekend of March I am adding my violin playing to an extremely interesting chamber opera project –Uksus by Erling Wold. From the press release:
“An autobiography of Daniil Kharms and the OBERIU, favorites of Pussy Riot, who met a bad end in the bad days of Stalin, told through his stories and the unfolding of his life.”
Composed by Erling Wold, post-minimalist score with strong cabaret influences is set to a libretto by Yulia Izmaylova and Felix Strasser, informed by absurd and bitter Russian sense of humor. The opera features singers and actors Laura Bohn, Nikola Printz, Duncan Wold, Bob Ernst, Mary Forcade and Roham Sheikhani; accompanied by the band comprised of some of the finest Bay Area musicians: Beth Custer on clarinet, Lisa Mezzacappa on bass, John Schott on guitar, Chris Grady on trumpet, Joel Davel on percussion and Diana Strong on accordion. Directed by Jim Cave and conducted by Brian Nies.
Looking forward to it!
