World premiere of the complete Ouroboros Trilogy. Ouroboros is a three-part operatic exploration of life, death, and rebirth, as symbolized by the ancient Greek icon of a serpent eating its own tail. The trilogy, produced by Beth Morrison Projects and The Friends of Madame White Snake, will be presented in Boston in the fall of 2016, both as individual operas and as seven-hour, full-day events. The production will bring together an acclaimed artistic team, including conductors Carolyn Kuan, Julian Wachner, and Lan Shui, and composers Zhou Long (Madame White Snake), Paola Prestini (Gilgamesh), and Scott Wheeler (Naga). Many extraordinary Boston music institutions, such as The New England Conservatory of Music, The Boston Children's Chorus, Arts Emerson, The Boston Children's Museum, and the Celebrity Series of Boston, are participating in the project.
Madame White Snake, co-commissioned by Opera Boston and the Beijing Music Festival, premiered in 2010 at Opera Boston and was brought to Beijing by Beth Morrison Projects for is Asian premiere at the Beijing Music Festival. Madame White Snake went on to win the Pulitzer Prize for Music in 2011, and was performed in concert by the National Taiwan Symphony in the fall of 2013.
