Iconic Voices: Mozart in the 21st Centurywill feature one of the most famous choral pieces ever written, Mozart's Requiem. This quintessential work continues to inspire audiences and bring them hope with it’s mixture of beauty, passion, pain, healing, turmoil, and ultimate peace and rest.  This work will be paired with his Sparrow Mass, written 15 years earlier when Mozart was just twenty years old.  Delightful in its playful beauty and imitation of sparrows, these two pieces will celebrate the iconic voice of Amadeus Wolfgang Mozart, and his continuing ability to delight, challenge, and speak to audiences in the 21st century.  Both works (and more!) will showcase the masterful voices of the Chorale, under the artful conducting of Maestro John Sutton. You will not want to miss this season ending concert as we celebrate 45 years of the Angeles Chorale lifting their VOICES, and 10 years of Maestro Sutton leading them in bringing great choral music to the minds and hearts of our audiences.

Mozart’s The Magic Flute, a whimsical tale with an original libretto from Emanuel Schikaneder, is directed by NJ Agwuna and conducted by Music Director Joseph Colaneri with costume design by Christelle Matou.

“The Magic Flute is a fairytale about finding your own way in the world. This production will be explored through storytelling. We take a look at the classical ways of storytelling, through narration, imagination, and performative action. We are quite literally going from the page to the stage. This story is important to tell in 2021 because we are so inundated with information and opinions influencing our own thoughts and morales. It is time for all of us to seek out our own paths and figure out who we want to be in this world.” — NJ Agwuna.

 

In this new storybook English adaptation by Kelley Rourke, Eric Owens stars in an expanded role of Sarastro, guiding audiences through the story with wisdom and wit.

The Passion of Mary Cardwell Dawson is a new play with music, celebrating the founder of the historic and groundbreaking National Negro Opera Company and starring acclaimed mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves in the title role. The work includes selections from the repertory of the National Negro Opera Company, as well as original music by Carlos Simon to a text by playwright Sandra Seaton.

“Madame Dawson was an arts pioneer, a woman of many firsts, whose remarkable story had been all but forgotten until recently. Mary Cardwell Dawson broke through incredible barriers to give voice to singers of color, creating opportunities that eventually brought them to major American opera house stages for the first time. It is an honor to champion her story — and that of the National Negro Opera Company she founded in 1941.” — Denyce Graves
