The Rose Elf

The Angel’s Share kicks off with the World Premiere of The Rose Elf, a chamber opera by composer David Hertzberg, directed by the visionary R. B. Schlather and starring award-winning mezzo-soprano Samantha Hankey. Hertzberg just won the Music Critics Association of North America’s “Best New Opera Award” for his last work, The Wake World (based on famed occultist Aleister Crowley), and in The Rose Elf he tells the tale of two lovers torn apart by a senseless act of violence; and of a strange and sensuous being, at once near and distant, who witnesses this tragedy and is transformed.

Directed by R.B. Schlather

The Singers: Samantha Hankey, The Elf; Alisa Jordheim, The Girl/Luna; Kyle Bielfield, The Beloved/Horus; Andrew Bogard, The Brother 

The Orchestra: Teddy Poll, conductor; Zhenwei Li, clarinet; Bryn Coveney, horn; Bradley Loudis, percussion; Euntaek Kim, piano; Shannon Lee, violin; Abigail Fayette, violin; Sung Jin Lee, viola; John-Henry Crawford, cello; Sam Casseday, bass 

The Angel’s Share, a new series of opera and chamber music concerts, takes place in Green-Wood’s Catacombs. One of the oldest structures in the 478-acre National Historic Landmark Cemetery, the Catacombs were built in the 1850s and are normally closed to the public. The series takes its name from the distiller’s term for whiskey that evaporates while maturing in the barrel, thus going to the angels.

Each performance includes a pre-concert reception at sunset overlooking New York harbor and the Manhattan skyline.

$75 for members of Green-Wood and BHS / $80 for non-members

ROSSINI | Il barbiere di Siviglia

Gioacchino Rossini's classic comic opera is about who will win the young Rosina. Will Count Almaviva succeed, or will she end up with the elderly Doctor Bartolo, who has locked her in? 

In this version, the story is told from Rosina's point of view. Director François De Carpentries and set designer Karine Van Hercke use her diary as a visual and conceptual starting point, in which the maiden's storm of feelings are broken down, reflected and expressed. We become part of a game that is entertaining and infectiously funny, but also vulnerable and confused: the game of a young woman who is on a journey of becoming.

Free introduction one hour before the performance

ROSSINI | Il barbiere di Siviglia

Gioacchino Rossini's classic comic opera is about who will win the young Rosina. Will Count Almaviva succeed, or will she end up with the elderly Doctor Bartolo, who has locked her in? 

In this version, the story is told from Rosina's point of view. Director François De Carpentries and set designer Karine Van Hercke use her diary as a visual and conceptual starting point, in which the maiden's storm of feelings are broken down, reflected and expressed. We become part of a game that is entertaining and infectiously funny, but also vulnerable and confused: the game of a young woman who is on a journey of becoming.

Free introduction one hour before the performance
