Music, poetry, dance and theatre combine in The No One’s Rose—a new, multifaceted, genre-defying piece. PBO, in partnership with the American Modern Opera Company and Stanford Live, is heartened to bring this life-affirming work to the stage after more than six years in the making and a reschedule from its original premiere in October 2020.
The core of these performances is the poetry of Paul Celan, who wrote some of the most arresting accounts of the Holocaust, set to a new score for period instruments by the award-winning Matthew Aucoin. His score is just one part of a musical collage, embracing music as diverse as Bach, Sam Cooke and songs from popular culture.
Originally envisaged as a meditation on what happens after a catastrophe, The No One’s Rose assumes more significance in the wake of the pandemic, and it seems fitting that these performances strangely and wonderfully align with our return to live performance.
This new creation is realized by a star cast of artists and creatives working in collaboration to bring to life this bold new work for our times, including Davóne Tines, Julia Bullock, Anthony Roth Costanzo, and Paul Appleby, all directed by the visionary Zack Winokur.
