by Igor Stravinsky
Stravinsky’s neoclassical dark comedy. Young star tenor Ben Bliss is the cad Tom Rakewell, alongside soprano Golda Schultz as the virtuous Anne Trulove and bass-baritone Christian Van Horn as the diabolical Nick Shadow. Stravinsky built the score around stylistic references to the work of earlier composers while also maintaining a sense of the uncanny, even macabre, that is distinctly modern.
