Portland Opera: Dominick Argento’s Postcard from Morocco
March 21, 23m, 27, 29, 2014
Seven travelers find themselves stranded together in a waiting room. They all have luggage that may reveal their professions while concealing their most personal secrets. During a suspenseful and witty game of cat-and-mouse, they probe the possible contents of each other’s luggage and lives, leading to revelations that are delightful, shocking and deeply stirring. Dominick Argento is a Pulitzer Prize and Grammy© Award winner and Postcard From Morocco is lyrical and delightfully fresh, drawing influences from every type of music, from Wagner to ragtime. Kevin Newbury, whose work on Galileo Galilei was called “vivid and entertaining” by Oregon Music News, returns to direct.
In the intimate Newmark Theatre, the ensemble cast and chamber orchestra will capture your imagination. Sung in English with text projected above the stage.
