Ted Sperling will lead MasterVoices’ new production of “Orphic Moments,” at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Rose Hall
 
 
 

On May 6 and 7, Music Director and Conductor Ted Sperling will lead MasterVoices’ new production of “Orphic Moments,” at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Rose Hall, in conjunction with producers Anthony Roth Costanzo and Cath Brittan.
 
The inventive and contemporary pairing, which premiered at National Sawdust, combines composer and librettist Matthew Aucoin ’s dramatic cantata, “The Orphic Moment,” with Gluck’s “Orfeo ed Euridice.
 
The production will be conducted by Ted Sperling, directed by Zack Winokur, and designed by Douglas Fitch. It is set to star countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo, sopranos Kiera Duffy and Lauren Snouffer, dancer Bobbi Jene Smith, violinist Keir GoGwilt, the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, and the MasterVoices Chorus.
 
In a press release, director Zack Winokur said, “The idea of this pairing is to give a different context and frame for understanding this story that we know so well. I’m excited to be taking this on with such a formidable cast and with the massive and wonderful forces of MasterVoices. In this staging, they become a protean central character; at once the core community of Orfeo and Eurydice’s world, as well as set architecture and landscape.”
