Catch Young Artists Series’ (YAS) MAD ABOUT MOZART: Sex, Seduction, Death, and Transcendence on April 22, 7pm.
Mad About Mozart: Sex, Seduction, Death, and Transcendence — will present excerpts from the seminal operas and oratorios of Mozart integrated with dance, stream of consciousness narrative, and mixed media. All performers – singers, dancers, actors, and musicians – will be integrated with the audience for a black box theatre experience. Mozart’s music is alternatingly sacred and profane, exploring the perennial conflict between the id, the ego, and the super ego. Ultimately, the programming of the scenes will demonstrate that we can attain a state of classical ‘balance’ and inner peace by exploring the layered dimensions of dark and light.
The Young Artists Series provides a professional training ground for young classical singers in the art and craft of stage performance. It gives them the opportunity to integrate singing with stage acting, diction, repertoire, script analysis, dance & movement, and understand better the use of production elements. The goal is to furnish them with a solid foundation on which to build a sustainable performance career.
Starring Karla Gutierrez, Tricia Amper Jimenez, Lorraine Lisen, Joseleo Logdat, Bernadette Mamauag, Krissan Manikan, Gabri Dolor Panlilio, Nomer Son with RankOne guest performers Melisa Camba, Christine Crame, Anton Ferrer, Wesley Machado, Jon Meer Vera Perez, Stephanie Reese and Jonathan Wagner.
