Greetings from the Hudson Valley, where I've resided for the past month choreographing an opera for Bard SummerScape. The Miracle of Heliane, originally composed by Erich Wolfgang Korngold in 1927, premieres TONIGHT July 26 and runs through August 4th. (Thanks for the rec, New York Times!)
I'm thrilled to be the choreographer of this massive production and to be working with a dream cast of dancers, singers, and design collaborators.
“Das Wunder der Heliane” is conducted by Leon Botstein, with direction by Christian Räth and set design and costumes by Esther Bialas. I've been blessed to have been able to bring some stellar performer-collaborators with me on this adventure: David Gonsier, Joey Kipp, Doug LeCours, Karla Quintero, Tara Sheena, Niko Tsocanos, Meg Weeks, Mei Yamanaka, with choreographic assistance from KC Athol.
