Blue – Mostly Mozart Festival Evening Broadcast
Role: The Reverend
August 14, 5 pm PST – 8 pm EST – 2 am CET
The centerpiece of the 2020 Mostly Mozart Festival is a documentary about the opera Blue.
Hailed by The New York Times for its “elegant” libretto, “vibrant performance from an orchestra of nearly 50 players,” and “superb” cast the documentary will pair exclusive musical highlights from the opera’s debut at the 2019 Glimmerglass Festival, enriched by commentary from its creators, composer Jeanine Tesori and librettist/director Tazewell Thompson. Musicologist Naomi André will offer context and insight into Blue’s creation and enduring resonance.
Their voices will be interwoven and richly scored with music from the opera, bringing the story to life in an immersive narrative audio experience.
Starring: Kenneth Kellogg, Briana Hunter, Aaron Crouch, Gordon Hawkins
