Join us for an in-concert presentation of The Lesson of Da Ji, winner of the 2013 Dora Mavor Moore award for Outstanding New Musical/Opera.

The libretto – from an ancient myth based on a true story about the concubine Da Ji and her forbidden love for a young nobleman – is by Marjorie Chan, and the music, in which traditional baroque instruments (viola da gamba, lute, violin, recorders) are joined by Chinese instruments (pipa, erhu and guzheng), is by Alice Ping Yee Ho. Together Ho and Chan have created an opera of unusual intensity and beauty.

Points of Departure is the English translation of François Rose’s Points d’emergence, and the idea of borders—as simultaneously rigid and porous— links the composers and the cultural and aesthetic influences emerging in their music. François Rose is a French Canadian living in the U.S; Linda Catlin Smith, producer Ray Dillard, and myself are American born, but now living in Canada. Nicolas Gilbert’s work crosses genre and applies extra musical narrative touches to his solo vibraphone piece; Catlin Smith’s work, coincidentally enough, also is inspired by literature.
