Opera | Susanna: Third Part Of The Oratorio By Handel


Handel’s oratorio Susanna explores the biblical story of a blameless young woman who stood strong in the truth when faced with threats of sexual violence and false accusations of promiscuity that carried the punishment of the death penalty. Choir of Trinity Wall Street; Trinity Baroque Orchestra; Julian Wachner, conductor. Grammy-nominated interpreters of both early and new music, The Choir of Trinity Wall Street has changed the realm of 21st-century vocal music, breaking new ground with an artistry described as “blazing with vigour…a choir from heaven” (The Times). The ensemle has been described as “thrilling” (New Yorker), “musically top-notch” (Wall Street Journal), and “simply superb” (New York Times). The Grammy-nominated Trinity Baroque Orchestra made its debut for Trinity Wall Street’s 2009 performances of Messiah, and has since performed and recorded exclusively with the Trinity Choir in master- works of Bach, Handel, and Schütz, including Handel’s Israel in Egypt, Bach’s Passions and more. The Trinity Baroque Orchestra has recorded with the Choir of Trinity Wall Street for the Grammy-nominated Israel in Egypt and J.S. Bach: Complete Motets. Music director Julian Wachner has been variously described as “jazzy, energetic, and ingenious,” (Boston Globe), having “splendor, dignity, outstanding tone combinations, sophisticated chromatic exploration…a rich backdrop, wavering between a glimmer and a tingle...,” (La Scena Musicale) being “a compendium of surprises,” (Washington Post) and as “bold and atmospheric,” while having “an imaginative flair for allusive text setting,” and noted for “the silken complexities of his harmonies” (New York Times). He has made guest appearances with San Francisco Opera, New York City Opera, Glimmerglass Opera, New York Philharmonic, Hong Kong Philharmonic and many more.

Opera | Massenet's Werther Recital


New York Opera Forum performs the complete opera of Werther by Jules Massenet. A live musical recital performed in concert with piano accompaniment. Werther, Massenet’s masterpiece, was written in German, in Vienna, and reprised the following year at the Opéra Comique in French. The libretto was inspired by Goethe’s epistolary novel, The Sufferings of Young Werther, whose intense romanticism perfectly suited Massenet’s temperament. Reynaldo Hahn pithily summarised the instant sensation created by Massenet’s music: “Everyone loves Massenet, except perhaps for the inhabitants of Mars.” The score features magnificent duets between Werther and Charlotte, torn between their aspiration to happiness and implacable compliance with social and familial convention that the young woman could not escape. New York Opera Forum was founded by Richard Nechamkin in 1983 to give classically trained singers the opportunity to learn and perform standard operatic repertoire in the original languages.

Opening Reception | Even a click of the shutter is unnecessary: Photoworks 1993-2016


A solo exhibition of works by Zheng Guogu (b. 1970), an artist whose work responds to the rapid social and economic shifts in China brought on by globalization and mass media culture. This will be the first-ever survey of the historically significant Photoworks by the artist, whose treatment of photography has continued to be daring and inspirational. Zheng Guogu was born in Yangjiang, Guangdong Province, China. He grew up when the impact of the Cultural Revolution was waning as the country opened its door to an increasingly globalized world. As a result of this profound shift, Zheng Guogu had access to the cultures of the West and Hong Kong through television, pirated Hollywood films and computer games. This early exposure to Western media, culture and consumerism played a key role in shaping the artist’s worldview and artistic practice.
