Theater
Annandale: Bard College: ACQUANETTA. Music by Michael Gordon; Libretto by Deborah Artman; Directed by Daniel Fish; Conducted by David Bloom. An homage to the campy and spine-chilling horror films of the 1940s, Acquanetta combines theater, opera, and film to explore the world of a real-life B-movie star with a mysterious past. Known for her exotic beauty, Acquanetta—aka Mildred Davenport—was the star of such cult 1940s horror films as Captive Wild Woman, Jungle Woman, The Sword of Monte Cristo, and Tarzan and the Leopard Woman, before she disappeared from public life. With a soaring and often comic score from Bang on a Can cofounder Michael Gordon and text by librettist Deborah Artman, Acquanetta examines the ways in which the movie camera manipulates how we see and are seen. A vivid cast of characters reveals their inner longings and emotional shadows in a haunting meditation on identity, transformation, stereotypes, and typecasting, set in the heyday of Hollywood glamour. LUMA Theater, Last performance, 2 pm. 845-758-6822, https://fishercenter.bard.edu/events/acquanetta/→

Opera Premiere
Annandale: Bard College: Summerscape production of The Miracle of Heliane by Erich Wolfgang Korngold. Set in an unnamed totalitarian state, The Miracle of Heliane (Das Wunder der Heliane) features an intricate, erotic triangle between a ruthless despot, The Ruler; his beautiful and neglected wife, Heliane; and a young, messianic Stranger. An allegorical tale, about the destruction of a dictatorship by a woman, Heliane premiered to great acclaim in Hamburg in 1927, and remains extraordinarily relevant today. This new production is directed by Christian Räth, with sets and costumes by Esther Bialas, both making their SummerScape debuts. The consistently excellent cast includes the stunning Lithuanian soprano Ausrine Stundyte in an all-too-rare U.S. appearance alongside rising star tenor Daniel Brenna, and the heralded bass-baritone Alfred Walker.
