A.R.T.: Run AMOC! Festival. Work this season includes a new production of Monteverdi’s L’incoronazione di Poppea at the Cincinnati Opera, Gluck’s Orfeo ed Eurydice and Matthew Aucoin’s Orphic Moment at Lincoln Center’s Rose Theater, Monteverdi’s Il Ballo delle Ingrate with William Christie at Juilliard, Sondheim’s A Little Night Music at the Royal Theatre Carré in Amsterdam, Tyshawn Sorrey’s Perle Noir, starring Julia Bullock with text by Claudia Rankine, and Henze’s El Cimarrón, both at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. His production of Cavalli’s La Calisto was hailed in Opera News as “one of the most elegant and imaginative shows seen in New York this season.” He co-directs and founded, with Matthew Aucoin, the American Modern Opera Company (AMOC). His productions have also been seen at the Aix-en-Provence Festival (Svadba), the Dutch National Opera (The New Prince—world premiere), La Monnaie (Les Mamelles de Tirésias), the Royal Opera House (Most of the Boys—world premiere, They Shoot Horses Don’t They), as well as on film in collaboration with the Academy Award-nominated director Mike Figgis, in nightclubs, and in the Supreme Court for a surprise birthday performance for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
