Artistic Director’s Welcome DIANE PAULUS The Terrie and Bradley Bloom Artistic Director American Repertory Theater

Welcome to the world premiere of Crossing. In 2012, the A.R.T. launched our Civil War Project, a multi-year initiative to commemorate the 150th anniversary of this critical moment in our nation’s history. In collaboration with Harvard faculty, and largely inspired by the scholarship of Harvard University President and Civil War historian Drew Faust, the A.R.T. has devoted the last three years to investigating the Civil War through a series of productions, readings, panel discussions, and academic courses. I first met Matthew Aucoin when he was an undergraduate at Harvard University. After seeing the opera he wrote his senior year, I approached Matthew about composing a new work for the Civil War initiative. We suggested Whitman’s Memoranda During the War as a source of inspiration. Two months later, he sent us a treatment for the opera that has become Crossing. One of my goals is to provide artists with a home where they can develop work over time. It has been a great pleasure to work on this production with Matthew over the last three years, and to continue A.R.T.’s history of staging new opera, which in the past has included works by composers Philip Glass and Tod Machover. Throughout this process, I have been grateful for the partnership of Diane Wondisford and Music-Theatre Group—an organization that took a risk on me when I was a young director. I am also thrilled to be working with such an inspiring creative team—designers Tom Pye, Jennifer Tipton, David Zinn, Finn Ross, and choreographer Jill Johnson, Director of Dance at Harvard. Thank you for joining us for this world premiere and for the culmination of the A.R.T.’s Civil War Project.

César Alvarez and Edwin Lee Gibson in Futurity (2011/12 Season)


Over the past three seasons, the American Repertory Theater has commemorated the 150th anniversary of the Civil War by developing new work that reexamines this critical moment in our nation’s history. Through a series of roundtable discussions, readings, and world premiere productions, this initiative has explored not only the Civil War itself, but also the ways in which that conflict continues to resonate in our lives today. Since 2012, the A.R.T. has been a part of The National Civil War Project, a multi-year, multi-city collaboration among five performing arts organizations and four leading universities: A.R.T. and Harvard; Alliance Theatre and Emory College Center for Creativity & Arts at Emory University in Atlanta, GA; Arena Stage and The George Washington University in Washington, D.C.; Center Stage in Baltimore, MD; and The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center at the University of Maryland in College Park, MD. Inspired by choreographer Liz Lerman (who was in residence at Harvard in 2011 to develop her own Civil War dance project, Healing Wars), The National Civil War Project brought together a range of artistic and academic voices with the goal of commissioning new work that speaks to the themes of the Civil War and civil strife as it continues today. As the professional theater at Harvard University, the A.R.T. is in a unique position to explore the ways in which artistic innovation and scholarly research can inform each other. Guided by Harvard President Drew Faust’s idea that the arts should play a central role in the cognitive life of the university, the A.R.T. convened a series of Civil War roundtable discussions that brought scholars from Harvard and beyond into dialogue with directors, choreographers, writers, composers, and performers, with the goal of generating public dialogues, readings, and productions at the A.R.T., and new courses in the university curriculum. The first roundtable was a conversation co-hosted by the Hutchins Center for African & African American Research that explored Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Subsequent roundtables focused on “Medicine, Weaponry, War Wounds, and The Soldier’s Body,” and “Documenting the Civil War through Photography, Letters, Memoir, and Painting,” a discussion co-hosted by the Harvard Art Museums.

Work staged as part of The National Civil War Project at the A.R.T. has included:

World Premiere Productions: Futurity: A Musical by The Lisps, an indie-rock, sci-fi musical about a Union soldier who collaborates with the mathematician Ada Lovelace to end the war. (Mar. - Apr. 2012, OBERON) The Boston Abolitionists Project, an ensemble-devised piece about the trial of fugitive slave Anthony Burns, featuring the A.R.T. Institute Class of 2013. (May 2013, The Ex) Father Comes Home From The Wars (Parts 1, 2 & 3), the first three parts of an epic new play by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks. Presented in association with The Public Theater. (Jan. - Mar. 2015, Loeb Drama Center) Crossing, an opera written and composed by Matthew Aucoin (Harvard '12), inspired by the journal Walt Whitman kept as a nurse during the Civil War. (May 29 June 6 2015, Citi Shubert Theatre)

New Work Developed: War Dept., a musical by Ruth and Jim Bauer set in Ford’s Theatre after the assassination of President Lincoln. War Dept. was selected to be part of the 2014 National Music Theater Conference at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center. Four Harriets, a play by Harvard University Professor Timothy P. McCarthy, about the intersecting lives of four abolitionist women: Harriet Beecher Stowe, Harriet Wilson, Harriet Jacobs, and Harriet Tubman. (Reading, Fall 2015).

New Work Devised and Produced by the A.R.T. Community Connections Program: The Proclamation Project, a collaborative creative writing/ performance intensive for local high school students, who draw inspiration from the Civil War and other themes and events from American history. The inaugural July 2013 workshop was simultaneously conducted with the Alliance Theatre's Collision Project, a program for Atlanta area teens. Each week, via Skype, both groups shared their process and exchanged ideas on the legacy of the Civil War in America. Proclamation 2 (Nov. 2014) was inspired by themes of rebellion, protest culture, and radicalism. The group of students used The Radical Reader as their source text and worked with A.R.T. artists and Harvard University Professor Timothy P. McCarthy to devise a new piece. Proclamation 2 premiered at OBERON and focused on an Occupy Wall Streetstyle protest that asked the question, "Will you join up or will you turn away?"

New Courses at Harvard University: “History and Literature 90x: Staging the Civil War — From the Archive to the A.R.T.” This seminar taught by Professor Timothy P. McCarthy explored how contemporary writers and directors use history to find new and creative ways to tell the story of the American Civil War on stage. (Spring 2015)

“Dramatic Arts 105: Production Dramaturgy and A.R.T. Civil War Project” This seminar taught by A.R.T. Director of Artistic Programs/Dramaturg Ryan McKittrick gave students opportunities to engage dramaturgically with work in The National Civil War Project. (Spring 2015)

Public Dialogues: “All the Way: The Civil Rights Act from 1964 to Today,” a conversation moderated by Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. , Director of the Hutchins Center for African & African American Research at Harvard University, during the run of Robert Schenkkan’s All the Way, a play about LBJ and the passage of the Civil Rights Act. Co-hosted by the Hutchins Center for African & African American Research and the A.R.T. (Sept. 23, 2013) “All the Way?: The Unfinished Struggle for Civil Rights,” a conversation with playwright Robert Schenkkan, Harvard Law School Professor Lani Guinier, Tufts University Professor Peniel E. Joseph, and Harvard University Chief Diversity Officer Lisa Coleman. (Oct. 22, 2014)* “Fighting for Freedom: The Civil War and Its Legacies,” a conversation with Columbia University Professor Eric Foner and Harvard University Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. (Feb. 8, 2015, following Father Comes Home From The Wars*) "Crossing: A Lecture/Recital," a recital and discussion with composer Matthew Aucoin (Harvard College '12) about his new opera, inspired by the journals and poetry of Walt Whitman. Moderated by Robert N. Shapiro (AB '72, JD '78); featuring Davone Tines (Harvard College '09). Co-hosted with the Mahindra Humanities Center. (Mar. 12, 2015) * These conversations are part of The A.R.T. of Human Rights, a collaboration between the A.R.T. and the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School, directed and hosted by Harvard University Professor Timothy P. McCarthy, and supported by a project grant from Mass Humanities.

Matthew Aucoin at a workshop presentation of Crossing.

On Crossing By Matthew Aucoin “But for the opera…I could never have written Leaves of Grass,” Walt Whitman reminisced late in life. It’s perhaps surprising that the quintessential American poet, the writer whose signature bard-call is a “barbaric yawp” rather than a refined warble, spent his formative years— before setting off to cross a wild, apparently “formless” poetic frontier— absorbing the bel canto operas of Donizetti, Bellini, Rossini, and the young Verdi. I share Whitman’s opinion that the essence of opera has nothing to do with the stuffy salons and social one-upmanship of the Americans who imported it to New York in the 19th century: opera is a primal union of animal longing, as expressed in sound, and human meaning, as expressed in language. Indeed, Whitman considered opera the pinnacle of human expression, something beyond the powers of language alone. And in his best poems, Whitman operates like an opera composer: he carries the English language into a new musical landscape. Whitman’s “melodies” surge boundlessly, spilling over the side of the page; his exclamations are wild and craggy. His poetry is both the waterfall and the rocks on which the water crashes. 10

“What is it, then, between us?” With this resonant question at the climax of “Crossing Brooklyn Ferry,” Whitman asks many things at once: what is his relationship to his contemporaries, his fellow men and women? What is his relationship to you, the reader, whoever you may be, whenever and wherever you may be reading his poem? And what is the relationship between the contradictory elements of his own self? The phrase “between us” itself has a double meaning: what is the relationship between us, and what stands between us, keeping us apart? In the moment that Whitman asks this question, he is in a state of unknowing; he wants to know, and needs to know. Crossing emerges out of my sense that Whitman wrote his poetry out of need—that his poetry is not, or is not exclusively, a vigorous assertion of what he is, but rather the expression of a yearning to be what he is not, or to reconcile opposing aspects of his identity. The person/persona/personality “Walt Whitman, an one of So, in Crossing, the Walt Whitman American, the roughs” is the who walks the stage is not that living product of this need.

familiar poetic persona. Rather, this is Whitman as I imagine he might have been to himself...

So, in Crossing, the Walt Whitman who walks the stage is not that familiar poetic persona. Rather, this is Whitman as I imagine he might have been to himself, starting from a midlife crisis which prompts his radical, heroic decision to drop everything and volunteer in the war hospitals. Naturally, this Whitman is a fictional creation. Crossing is a musical fantasia which imagines and realizes the many forces—generosity, insecurity, longing, selflessness, bravery, unfulfilled sexual desire, a need to escape his own life, a boundless kindness—that caused a man named Walter Whitman, Jr. to forge an indelible embodiment of the American spirit in his poetry. Matthew Aucoin composed and wrote Crossing and is conducting its world premiere.

A Far Cry stands at the forefront of an exciting new generation in classical music. According to the New York Times, the GRAMMY nominated self-conducted orchestra “brims with personality or, better, personalities, many and varied.” A Far Cry was founded in 2007 by a tightly-knit collective of 17 young professional musicians—the Criers—and since the beginning has fostered those personalities, developing an innovative structure of rotating leadership both on stage and behind the scenes. By expanding the boundaries of orchestral repertoire and experimenting with the ways music is prepared, performed, and experienced, A Far Cry has been embraced throughout the world with hundreds of performances coast to coast and across the globe, and hundreds of thousands of online views of live streaming concerts and YouTube archives.

About the A.R.T. The A.R.T. at Harvard University is a leading force in the American theater, producing groundbreaking work in Cambridge and beyond. The A.R.T. was founded in 1980 by Robert Brustein, who served as Artistic Director until 2002, when he was succeeded by Robert Woodruff. Diane Paulus began her tenure as Artistic Director in 2008. Under her leadership, the A.R.T. seeks to expand the boundaries of theater by programming events that immerse audiences in transformative theatrical experiences. Throughout its history, the A.R.T. has been honored with many distinguished awards, including the Tony Award for Best New Play for All the Way (2014); consecutive Tony Awards for Best Revival of a Musical for Pippin (2013) and The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess (2012), both of which Paulus directed; a Pulitzer Prize for 'Night, Mother (1983); a Jujamcyn Prize for outstanding contribution to the development of creative talent; the Tony Award for Best Regional Theater; and numerous Elliot Norton and IRNE Awards. The A.R.T. collaborates with artists around the world to develop and create work in new ways. It is currently engaged in a number of multi-year projects, including The National Civil War Project, an initiative that culminates in the staging of new work this season. Under Paulus’s leadership, the A.R.T.’s club theater, OBERON, has been an incubator for local and emerging artists and has attracted national attention for its innovative programming and business models. As the professional theater on the campus of Harvard University, the A.R.T. catalyzes discourse, interdisciplinary collaboration, and creative exchange among a wide range of academic departments, institutions, students, and faculty members, acting as a conduit between its community of artists and the university. A.R.T. artists also teach undergraduate courses in directing, dramatic literature, acting, voice, design, and dramaturgy. The A.R.T. Institute for Advanced Theater Training, which is run in partnership with the Moscow Art Theater School, offers graduate-level training in acting, dramaturgy, and voice. Dedicated to making great theater accessible, the A.R.T. actively engages more than 4,000 community members and local students annually in project-based partnerships, workshops, conversations with artists, and other enrichment activities both at the theater and across the Greater Boston area. Through all of these initiatives, the A.R.T. is dedicated to producing world-class performances in which the audience is central to the theatrical experience.
