North Carolina Opera presents ALL SOULS
CAM Raleigh, North Carolina Opera, and New Music Raleigh will present John Supko’s concert piece ALL SOULS on Monday, November 25 at CAM Raleigh.
“In addition to underscoring North Carolina Opera’s commitment to presenting a variety of repertoire from the standard to cutting edge, this collaboration between three young and vibrant Raleigh arts organizations illustrates perfectly how each of us value cross-pollination and connecting to our community,” said NC Opera’s Artistic Director & Principal Conductor Timothy Myers. Myers will conduct the New Music Raleigh chamber orchestra featuring soprano Ashleigh Semkiw in this non-subscription event.
ALL SOULS, by composer and Duke faculty member John Supko, is a setting of nine excerpts from the novel All Souls Day by the Dutch author Cees Nooteboom for soprano, chamber orchestra, and electronic sampler.
Falling somewhere between the categories of melodrama, radio play and opera, ALL SOULS uses live and recorded voices to bring to life the intense relationship of Arthur Daane, a widowed, middle-aged documentary filmmaker, and Elik Oranje, a beautiful, mysterious woman half his age whom he meets in Berlin in the winter sometime in the late 1990’s.
ALL SOULS contains mature content and is not recommended for younger audiences.
