Sometimes the most profound way to talk about important issues is to sing about them -- just ask composers like Puccini or Wagner who weaved contemporary concerns throughout their seemingly "ageless" works. The Canticle of the Black Madonna is the latest entry in the great tradition of operas that explore challenging issues with breathlessly beautiful music. Set in Louisiana in 2010, The Canticle chronicles an American soldier's return to his wife and home -- where he confronts not only the Gulf oil spill, but the equally profound consequences of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Lush and stirring, the beautifully-staged production ultimately confirms the healing power of love. Portland's Newmark Theatre will host the world premiere of this superb new opera (in English) from composer Ethan Gans-Morse and librettist Tiziana DellaRovere. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
Watch a live performance from Joy Kills Sorrow.
Joy Kills Sorrow
Born of the illustrious Boston, Mass., folk and singer-songwriter scene, Joy Kills Sorrow is a musical collective of five classical and jazz-trained artists together to make stringband music. Though the quintet can usually be seen toting around bluegrass instruments, calling them a bluegrass band would be ridiculous. Their music is driven by a fierce poeticism, influenced by everything from chamber music to pop, indie rock, and yes – even bluegrass. Yet, if you listen closely, the band’s sound doesn’t flatly situate with any of those individual styles.
Fish & Bird
Fish & Bird’s latest album, Every Whisper is a Shout Across the Void, marks a major step forward for the young band. The project began in Victoria, BC in 2006 as an acoustic duo, comprised of Taylor Ashton (banjo, guitar, vocals) and Adam Iredale-Gray (fiddle).
