Young Artists of Cantanti Project Bring Oldest Surviving Opera EURIDICE to Life in NYC
From the earliest surviving opera, to a world premiere, from recitals to dance parties, this will be our most ambitious season yet. We look forward to working with friends old and new to make it all happen.
"the fearless and endlessly creative Cantanti Project underwent the project of restoring Caccini's work to vibrant life"
"a heart-wrenching, self-reflecting performance of a striking composition... an extraordinary experience"
"Caccini's EURIDICE may be four centuries old, but tonight is seemed fresh and new."
"The thoughtfulness of each singer was evident, not only in their choice of repertoire and their performance, but also in their eloquent essays..."
"laced with subtle comedic moments and tasty dramatic turns"
“My strongest memories of music are in the Philippines - family members singing karaoke at a children's birthday party, dragging a karaoke machine onto a beach wedding, singing in the middle of shopping malls. Because of this, for me singing especially is a fundamental human need. You don't need to be amazing at it - but our voices cry to be heard, and even if it's not around a campfire, we try to find ways to sing with others.”
“One of the things I love about working on new music, and stage works especially, is that they give us (both audiences and artists) the opportunity to explore fresh perspectives on who we are and how we relate to each other.”
“The unknown is always a little scary, but new work is so important to me, because the social construct is always changing, especially now. It is essential for us as artists to continue to hold up a mirror to the ways we behave, and reflect that in our stories we build.”
“I want people to see that young people can create exciting new works in a medium usually popularly perceived as stagnant.”
