Cage Match

Part of the Run AMOC! Festival

Pairs of AMOC artists from various disciplines face off against one another in three rounds of virtuosity. 

ROUND 1: Miranda Cuckson ("one of the most sensitive and electric interpreters of new music," Downbeat) and Keir GoGwilt (Louis Sudler Prize in the Arts, Harvard '13) in a spectacle of violin duets by Georg Friedrich Telemann, Franco Donatoni, and Christian Wolff
 
ROUND 2: Countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo (winner of Plácido Domingo’s international competition Operalia in 2012) and dancer Zack Winokur (creator of La Calisto, "one of the most elegant and imaginative shows seen in New York [last] season," Opera News) in Claudio Monteverdi’s Poppea
 
ROUND 3: Pianists Matthew Aucoin (Crossing, Artist-in-Residence at Los Angeles Opera, Harvard '12) and Conor Hanick (a pianist that "defies human description," Concerto Net; "a true champion of contemporary music," NPR) in two pieces for two pianos: John Adams’ classic Hallelujah Junction, and Aucoin’s recent piece, Finery Forge

The newly formed American Modern Opera Company, AMOC, won't ever be a typical opera company. No home. No subscribers. No overhead. Just artists. Artists looking for a way to capture their own voice, and do it authentically, with adequate preparation, and—perhaps most importantly—in collaboration, with a fluid notion of art forms and their intersection.
