The Thirteenth Child, by Poul Ruders
Fairytale Operas:  The Grimm Reality
Somewhere in memory, somewhere between the mythology of the ancient world and our current fascination with super-heroes, vampires, and wizards, the supernatural glow of childhood fairytales illumines our collective consciousness.  We’ll explore the world premiere of Poul Ruders’ The Thirteenth Child as we get to know the composer and his music, and look at aspects of other fairytale operas.

Cosi fan tutte, by Wolfgang Amadeous Mozart
Mozart and the Music of Fidelity

So what if some guy (your sister’s boyfriend in disguise!) shows up begging for your love?  You’re in a committed relationship, right?  Wait a minute . . . is this some kind of test?  Maybe so, but one thing’s for sure:  Mozart’s brilliant musical characterizations and Da Ponte’s tight comedic text make for a searching exploration of love and faithfulness then, in 1790, and now, in a very different time.  We’ll cozy up to Cosi, and look at some similar operatic “test cases” as well.
