South Shore Opera Company of Chicago
presents on February 26, 2017, 4pm    The Violet Hour
The Violet Hour explores the career of internationally acclaimed soprano Leontyne Price and how she rose to prominence during the 50’s into the 60’s, despite the segregation and discrimination which was prevalent in America. The Violet Hour traces Ms. Price’s journey from the early beginnings of her career up to her final performance of the opera Aida at the Metropolitan Opera House in 1985.  Through the ingenious use of projections and voice, Ms. Lamarre will portray the life of Ms. Leontyne Price, a true iconic American.

Charles Gaines: Manifestos 2
Wednesday, December 9, 2015 8:30 pm

ROY AND EDNA DISNEY/CALARTS THEATER

Charles Gaines fills the stage with a nine-piece orchestra and large-scale video projection to create Manifestos 2, with a musical arrangement by director and composer Sean Griffin of Opera Povera. Gaines devised musical translations of four influential speeches using a conceptual rule-based musical notation system. The score is based on: Malcolm X’s last public speech, made in 1965 in Detroit’s Ford Auditorium; Peace, Power, Righteousness: An Indigenous Manifesto (1999) by Canadian Mohawk scholar and activist Taiaiake Alfred; Raúl Alcaraz and Daniel Carrillo’s Indocumentalismo Manifesto, an Emerging Socio-Political Ideological Identity (2010); and Olympe DeGouges’s 1791 Declaration of the Rights of Woman and the Female Citizen. Manifestos 2, the second in a series of works by Gaines based on influential historical speeches, was premiered at NY MOMA in 2014.
