Julia Bullock, In Concert
Soprano Julia Bullock has been hailed as an impressive, fast-rising soprano poised for a significant career (The New York Times). Equally at home with opera and concert repertoire, she has captivated audiences with her versatile artistry and commanding stage presence.
This season, Ms. Bullock appears as Clara in Porgy and Bess with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra conducted by David Robertson, Anne Trulove in The Rake’s Progress at Aix en Provence, and Kitty Oppenheimer in the BBC Symphony’s production and recording of John Adams Dr. Atomic, conducted by John Adams.
She also performs twice with the Los Angeles Philharmonic: in John Adams El Niño, and in the role of A Girl in West Side Story at the Hollywood Bowl, conducted by Gustavo Dudamel. Ms. Bullock is featured in a recital program with tenor Ian Bostridge presented by the LA Phil, entitled Night and Dreams: A Schubert & Beckett Recital, directed by Yuval Sharon.
Her busy season also includes the premiere of a work by Jonathan Berger with Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, a continued collaboration with the International Contemporary Ensemble (I.C.E) on “Perle Noir: Meditations for Joséphine,” in performances at Mostly Mozart and Da Camera, a concert presented by the Resonant Bodies Festival (a New York-based contemporary music festival that celebrates new vocal works), and a performance of Villa Lobos’ Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5 with the Baltimore Symphony, conducted by Marin Alsop.

Local Vocal Americana Concert
From the sidewalks of New York to the mountains of the south to the dust bowl of the central plains, we will take you on a journey of song.
Local Vocal was established to give local singers an opportunity to showcase programs of song that have reached classic status. That doesn’t necessarily mean only “classical music” (such as opera and art song), but also includes deservedly popular music theatre songs and lighter operetta fare. The song repertoire grows as time passes, and once cutting-edge shows like Wicked and Sweeney Todd have become classics in their own right. A concert comprised of American songs sweeps the decades to pick up a cute patriotic ditty like I’m a Yankee Doodle Dandy as well as music from shows set in the heartland of small town America – Carousel in Maine, Show Boat on the ol’ Mississippi, State Fair in Iowa, and traversing from Neverland to The Tender Land. For many it will be a trip down memory lane, and yet also a revelation of some wonderful songs that are rarely heard.
Well-known Rochester soprano and Eastman Community Education teacher Cecile Saine directs Local Vocal in “Americana”, providing continuity in a diverse program accompanied by pianist Alla Kuznetsov. Local Vocal is one of Rochester Lyric Opera’s musical outreach programs, providing opportunities to talented performers of all ages who call this area home, and thus the personnel of Local Vocal shifts from concert to concert. This performance will include regional professional singers alongside high school and adult amateur voice students. In addition, the Lyric Theatre’s own middle-school choir, Lyric Voices, will open with a charming set from the new musical, Finding Neverland.

THE CAT’S MEOW
by Steven Peros
A play based on the film in 2002 by the author, directed by Peter Bogdanovich, and starring Kirsten Dunst, Eddie Izzard, and Edward Herrmann.
“It is November, 1924. Thirteen passengers walked on board of The Oneida; one was carried off horizontally two days later … History has been written in whispers.” The dark story concerns the powerful William Randolph Hearst, at the helm of his yacht for a weekend cruise whose guest list includes Charlie Chaplin, who has been carrying on a secret affair with Hearst’s lover, Marion Davies.
Join us a passenger on William Randolph Hearst’s yacht celebrating the birthday of silent film movie mogul, Thomas Ince. Based on a true story in 1924, you will hobnob with Hollywood’s most iconic stars such as Marion Davies and Charlie Chaplin during the Oneida’s voyage out to sea.
