BARDSUMMERSCAPE “Bard SummerScape and Bard Music Festival always unearth piles of buried treasures.” — The New Yorker
july 5 – august 18,
Bard SummerScape 2013 presents
seven inspired weeks of opera, music, theater, dance, film, and cabaret. The hub of these offerings is the 24th
annual Bard Music Festival, this year examining the life, work, and cultural
milieu of the 20th-century composer Igor Stravinsky. SummerScape takes place in the extraordinary Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts and other venues on Bard College’s stunning Mid–Hudson Valley campus.
July 26 – August 4
Music by Sergey Taneyev American Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Leon Botstein Directed by Thaddeus Strassberger Russian composer Sergey Taneyev’s extraordinary but rarely staged opera conveys the searing drama of Aeschylus’ powerful trilogy about the cursed House of Atreus, from Agamemnon’s fateful return from Troy to the trial of his son Orestes.
Weekend One August 9–11 Becoming Stravinsky: From St. Petersburg to Paris will trace Stravinsky’s path from his early Russian years to his first great successes in Paris writing for Sergei Diaghilev’s legendary Ballets Russes, most notably the scandalous premiere of The Rite of Spring.
Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company and SITI Company Choreographer Bill T. Jones and theater director Anne Bogart ’74 join forces to create a new work celebrating the centennial of Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring. Two of America’s leading dance and theater companies unite to explore the impact of one of the 20th century’s most explosive artistic moments.
World Premiere Adaptation
STRAVINSKY AND HIS WORLD
Weekend Two August 16–18 Stravinsky Reinvented: From Paris to Los Angeles will explore Stravinsky’s creative output during the interwar years and the music he composed in the United States, where he settled in 1939.
July 12 – August 3
STRAVINSKY’S LEGACY AND RUSSIAN ÉMIGRÉ CINEMA The SummerScape 2013 film festival will be in two parts: a retrospective of Russian exile filmmaking in France and a series of more contemporary films by such directors as Jean-Luc Godard and Claude Chabrol.
July 5 – August 18
CABARET, MUSIC, FINE DINING, AND MORE Bard’s Belgian “Mirror Tent” returns to SummerScape.
THE MASTER AND MARGARITA
Bard Music Festival
U.S. Stage Premiere
Directed by János Szász Adapted by János Szász and Gideon Lester after the novel by Mikhail Bulgakov Hungarian film and stage director János Szász applies his opulent theatrical vision to this adaptation of Bulgakov’s novel—at once a pungent political satire, a magical fantasy, and an unforgettable love story. Suitable for audiences 15 and older (contains nudity).
