FROM THE DIRECTOR

Dear friends of living music, Even in this hyper-moderated age, there is nothing quite like experiencing music in real time and in person. See the faces of pure concentration. Hear the lungs expand with breath. (Is that sweat on her forehead?) Notice the glide of a graceful bow arm and the blur of fingers flying. Feel the bass line deep in the center of yourself. Watch the performers make eye contact with each other, and with you; it’s electric—and it’s all chamber music no matter the size of the group. All this is to say that we applaud those of you who take the time and trouble to put yourselves physically in our spaces, to hear and see the work (and play) of Butler School students and faculty. You could just stay at home and watch the live stream, but we suspect that you find your way over to campus because there is simply no comparable experience. Anything can happen, and does. So please join us this year to bear witness to an extraordinary lineup of talent, commitment, and sheer exuberance. You’ll hear and see everything from mariachi to Eugene Onegin, enjoy cabaret experiences with the Miró Quartet and Patrick Hughes as the bouncers, celebrate the music of King Prize winner Jennifer Higdon, swing hard with Joe Lovano, and raise one last birthday toast (or three) to Leonard Bernstein. Pick the four concerts that intrigue you most, or the three opera performances, to take advantage of deep savings. It’s our way of saying thanks for showing up to breathe the same air as our amazing performers. All my best,

MARY ELLEN POOLE

LA CLEMENZA DI TITO FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26 | 7:30 PM SUNDAY, OCTOBER 28 | 4:00 PM

by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2 | 7:30 PM SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 4 | 4:00 PM

Margaret Jumonville, director Kelly Kuo, conductor What is power without mercy? La clemenza di Tito (The Clemency of Titus) finds Vitellia—daughter of a deposed emperor in the year 79 A.D.—stewing with revenge against the titular Tito, the son of the man who took Vitellia’s family crown. As Tito makes plans to choose his empress, a tale of jealousy, mistaken identity and, ultimately, forgiveness swirls against the colossal backdrop of ancient Rome. Mozart was commissioned in the last year of his life to compose this new work to celebrate the coronation of Bohemia’s King Leopold II. Allegedly completed in just 18 days, it stands alongside Rossini’s The Barber of Seville in its mythical, quicksilver origin.


WINTER OPERA TRIO THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 28 | 7:30 PM SATURDAY, MARCH 2 | 7:30 PM SUNDAY, MARCH 3 | 4:00 PM Kelly Kuo, conductor The Women by Thomas Pasatieri Helen Park, director In The Women we find a Freudian purgatory: A trio of voices blend and spar as a man’s wife and mother fight over who is most deserving of his love.

The Telephone by Gian Carlo Menotti Matthew Schulz, director There’s more than one ring at play in The Telephone, a sweet, comedic opera that challenges protagonist Ben to propose to his girlfriend Lucy in between all her interminable phone calls. Will he get a word in edgewise before his train leaves the station?

Trouble in Tahiti by Leonard Bernstein Alexandra Saulsbury, director The domestic unhappiness of young, suburban couple Sam and Dinah is at the center of Trouble in Tahiti—a sly commentary on consumerism’s battle with love. 


EUGENE ONEGIN

by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

FRIDAY, APRIL 26 | 7:30 PM SUNDAY, APRIL 28 | 4:00 PM

FRIDAY, MAY 3 | 7:30 PM SUNDAY, MAY 5 | 4:00 PM

Meet Eugene Onegin, a young Russian dandy bored with the banality of everyday life. On a trip to the countryside he encounters the spirited Tatyana, who falls in love with him but is heartlessly rejected. Years later he sees the error of his ways, though is soon brought to heel by fate. Based on the Alexander Pushkin masterpiece of the same name, Eugene Onegin is an indictment of fashionable indifference and prejudice, as well as an invitation to look more closely at the people we encounter in life. Eugene Onegin was the first opera presented by the Butler Opera Center after it was endowed by Dr. Ernest and Mrs. Sarah Butler in 2004.


BUTLER OPERA INTERNATIONAL

Sunday, September 2, 4:00 PM Bates Recital Hall Butler Opera International competitively selects the world’s five most gifted preprofessional singers who are ready to launch their careers in opera.
