THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY
By Lowell Liebermann
Based on the novel by Oscar Wilde
A semi-staged opera in collaboration with the Boston Modern Orchestra Project
Sung in English
Wilde Opera Nights season sponsored by Randolph J. Fuller
A handsome, naïve young man is offered perpetual youth and immunity to life’s cruelty, for a price…
Join us in a shadowy world of debauchery and deals with the devil as the Boston Modern Orchestra Project and Odyssey Opera team up for a semi-staged production of Lowell Liebermann’s opera The Picture of Dorian Gray. Based on Oscar Wilde’s immortal novel of the same name, this performance marks the first installment of Odyssey Opera’s 2016-17 season of “Wilde opera nights,” channeling the dynamic work and world of the famous Irish author, playwright, and wit.
Liebermann’s taut and evocative score provides the perfect setting for a venture into the dark corners of the human psyche. The virtuosic musicians of BMOP and a host of top-notch singers provide the action.
