Gotham Chamber Opera LogoGotham Chamber Opera presents the U.S. Stage Premiere of Baden-Baden 1927, a staged evening of four one-act operas that appeared together at the Baden-Baden Festival in 1927, from October 23-29, 2013 at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater, 524 West 59th Street, New York City.  Performances: Wednesday, October 23, 2013 at 7:30pm and Friday, October 25; Saturday, October 26; and Tuesday, October 29, 2013 at 8pm.

Gotham Chamber Opera will begin its 12th season with a fully-staged production recreating the legendary Baden-Baden Festival of Contemporary Music performance of July 17, 1927. During the composer-organized summer festival, four one-act operas were presented in one evening: Kurt Weill’s Mahagonny Songspiel, Paul Hindemith’s Hin und zurück (There and Back), Darius Milhaud’s L’enlèvement d’Europe (The Abduction of Europa), and Ernst Toch’s Die Prinzessin auf der Erbse (The Princess and the Pea). Perhaps most noteworthy among the works is Weill’s Mahagonny Songspiel, which was premiered at the festival and later developed into the complete opera, Aufstieg und Fall der Stadt Mahagonny. Gotham Chamber Opera will re-create this historic performance of all four operas with an evening entitled Baden-Baden 1927.

The creative team for Baden-Baden 1927 consists of Neal Goren, conductor; Paul Curran, stage director; set design by German neo-expressionist painter Georg Baselitz; co-design and costume design by Court Watson; lighting design by Paul Hackenmueller; video design by Driscoll Otto; and hair and makeup design by Randy Mercer.

The production marks the long-awaited return to the New York stage of legendary soprano Helen Donath and also stars soprano Maeve Höglund, mezzo-soprano Jennifer Rivera, tenors Daniel Montenegro and Matthew Tuell, baritone Michael Mayes and bass John Cheek.

Gotham Chamber Opera’s 2013/2014 season will continue with a co-production with Trinity Church Wall Street, Marc-Antoine Charpentier’s La descente d’Orphée aux enfers from January 1-5, 2014.  In February, the company will present a double bill co-produced with and staged at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, consisting of Il combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda by Monteverdi, and a newly commissioned work, I Have No Stories to Tell You, by Gotham Chamber Opera Composer-In-Residence Lembit Beecher. The United States premiere of The Raven by Toshio Hosakawa at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater concludes the season in May 2014 as part of the New York Philharmonic’s inaugural NY PHIL BIENNIAL.
