About The No One’s Rose
In partnership with the American Modern Opera Company (AMOC) and Stanford Live, Philiharmonia brings to the Bay Area the world premiere of a powerful new production conceived and created by AMOC, featuring new music by 2018 MacArthur Fellow Matthew Aucoin. The No One’s Rose, a unique piece of music theatre, has at its center the poetry of prolific 20th century poet and Holocaust survivor Paul Celan, which asks a difficult question: what can be recovered after a whole world disappears? AMOC and Philharmonia’s musicians and dancers join forces for this powerful meditation on loss and recovery. Commissioned by PBO and Stanford Live, The No One’s Rose brings some of today’s most important opera stars and contemporary dancers to the Bay Area, directed by AMOC’s co-artistic director Zack Winokur and choreographer Bobbi Jene Smith. Anthony Roth Costanzo and Davóne Tines return to Philharmonia, while Julia Bullock and Paul Appleby make their PBO debuts.
Made possible with support from The Koret Foundation and The Ross E. Armstrong & Jonas (Jay) K. Stern Jews & Music Fund
