The No One’s Rose
Music, poetry, dance and theatre combine in The No One’s Rose—a new, multifaceted, genre-defying piece. PBO, in partnership with the American Modern Opera Company and Stanford Live, is heartened to bring this life-affirming work to the stage after more than six years in the making.

Paul Stanhope’s Giving Ground
The music of composer Paul Stanhope is full of drama and warmth, reflective of the character of his home country, Australia, and here he gives us his own, distinctive take on the famous La Folia folk melody. This co-commission with the Australian Baroque Orchestra marks our first partnership with our friends Down Under.

ODC Theater, San Francisco
Using striking examples from his own output and those of his contemporaries, as well as some vivid gems from as far back as the 14th century, Tarik O’Regan explores the role of the human voice from a composer’s perspective. Beginning with a solitary singer and culminating in the combined forces of PBO’s Chamber Players and Chorale, Tarik will trace a unique journey across centuries and cultures to arrive at the very music he is writing today, here in San Francisco, as PBO’s Composer in Residence.
