Combining music, poetry, dance, and theatre, The No One’s Rose is an audacious new offering from composer and conductor Matthew Aucoin. Co-commissioned by Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra and Stanford Live, and a co-production of Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra and AMOC (American Modern Opera Company), The No One’s Rose premieres at Stanford University’s Bing Concert Hall August 25, with additional performances August 26 and 29.
The core of The No One’s Rose is the poetry of Paul Celan — who wrote some of the most arresting accounts of the Holocaust — set to a new score for period instruments by Aucoin. Originally conceived as a meditation on what happens after a catastrophe, The No One’s Rose assumes more significance in the wake of the pandemic. A star cast of artists join forces to bring to life this bold new work, including Davóne Tines, Julia Bullock, Anthony Roth Costanzo, and Paul Appleby, all directed by the visionary Zack Winokur, with choreography by Bobbi Jene Smith.
Stanford Live August 25-29
