Listen to AOP and 400 years of opera on Symphony Space Live

Symphony Space orchestra

Symphony Space‘s streaming music site is offering audiences a chance to revisit their Wall to Wall Opera festival from 2007 that

explored the world of Western opera over the past 400 years, from Baroque to contemporary. Highlights of the day included a Master Class in bel canto with legendary soprano, Renata Scotto; the “Opera Matinee” featuring the New York City Opera Orchestra conducted by Gerald Steichen; performances by members of the Metropolitan Opera’s Young Artists Program; scenes from American operas performed by Encompass New Opera Theatre, new operas performed by Center for Contemporary Opera, Music-Theatre Group and American Opera Projects…

AOP’s contribution to this tour of opera history was scenes from Tarik O’Regan‘s Heart of Darkness conducted by Steven Osgood. You can hear this excerpt from Heart of Darkness, which will have its world premiere at the Royal Opera House’s Linbury Studio in 2011, along with the other Wall to Wall performances throughout the month here at Symphony Space Live.
