THE CHRONICLE OF NINE:
THE TRAGEDY OF QUEEN JANE
By Arnold Rosner
Libretto by Florence Stevenson
A co-production with Boston Modern Orchestra Project
Semi-staged, Sung in English
The performance will run approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes, including an intermission and pause.
The nine-day reign of Henry VII’s great-granddaughter ended with one of English history’s notorious beheadings when Mary Tudor’s supporters claimed the crown in 1553. This co-production of Odyssey Opera and Boston Modern Orchestra Project brings the poignant story of Lady Jane Grey to Boston audiences in a world premiere by Arnold Rosner, a composer whose work is both genre busting and intensely emotional.
Read the libretto.
“This is proof that…opera can certainly flourish in Boston.”
