Sir John Stainer: The Crucifixion

Sir John Stainer: The Crucifixion

A Good Friday tradition at The Brick Presbyterian Church for almost a century, Sir John Stainer's Lenten choral meditation The Crucifixion will be performed by the professional choir of the Brick Church, including soloists Jeremy Little and Nathaniel Sullivan, on Friday, March 30, at 12:15pm. Keith S. Tóth will conduct, and British concert organist Alistair Reid will provide the accompaniment on Brick Church's acclaimed Anderson organ.

Premiered in 1887, The Crucifixion is a fixture of the English choral tradition. Musicians today still enjoy performing choruses such as "Fling wide the gates," and careers have been founded on The Crucifixion's baritone and tenor solos. The chorus "God so loved the world" enjoys an independent existence as an anthem in parish choirs across the globe—a minor classic in its own right and a beautifully expressive piece of choral writing.

Admission is free and open to the public; a freewill offering will be collected. For further information, please call 212-289-4400, ext. 231.

Utopia Opera presents the chamber opera Hydrogen Jukebox by composer Philip Glass and beat poet Allen Ginsberg, premiered at the Spoleto Festival in 1990 and revived this September at the Ida K. Lang Recital Hall at Hunter College. Of the opera, Ginsberg said:

"Ultimately, the motif of Hydrogen Jukebox, the underpinning, the secret message, secret activity, is to relieve human suffering by communicating some kind of enlightened awareness of various themes, topics, obsessions, neuroses, difficulties, problems, perplexities that we encounter as we end the millennium....The title Hydrogen Jukebox comes from a verse in the poem Howl: '...listening to the crack of doom on the hydrogen jukebox....' It signifies a state of hypertrophic high-tech, a psychological state in which people are at the limit of their sensory input with civilization's military jukebox, a loud industrial roar, or a music that begins to shake the bones and penetrate the nervous system as a hydrogen bomb may do someday, reminder of apocalypse." —Allen Ginsberg

Price Walden: The Contract Player

After a successful concert performance as part of the New York Opera Fest, excerpts from The Contract Player come to Dixon Place! This staged performance will feature the completed scenes 1 and 3, as well as the dialogue for scene 2. After the show, there will be a talkback with the creative team: composer Price Walden and librettist/director Lane Williamson.

This world premiere will mark Price Walden's first opera. The Contract Player explores the flashbulb and cigarette smoke of 1947 Hollywood from the LGBTQ+ perspective. Roland Gray—the most successful leading man in the movie business—and Kathleen Sanders—a tough, intelligent woman who is frequently his co-star—share a close bond, eliciting gossip from every corner of the media. Thatcher West—a young screenwriter—harbors a deep love of Roland's films and has written him the role of a lifetime. As filming begins, Thatcher and Roland grow quite close and realize their attraction has become much more than professional. Under the pressure of the HUAC investigations of communist activity, as well as the incessant prying of gossip reporter Letty Lawrence, they are all forced to make some incredibly difficult decisions—both professional and personal.

Tickets are $15 in advance, $18 at the door, and $12 for students/seniors/IDNYC holders. For more information, please click here.
