Performance Notes

× “Ricky Ian Gordon is one of America’s most acclaimed composers of opera, musical theater and songs. His music has been performed and/or recorded by such internationally renowned singers as Renee Fleming, Dawn Upshaw, Nathan Gunn, Kelli O’Hara, Audra MacDonald, Kristin Chenoweth, Frederica Von Stade, Andrea Marcovicci, and Betty Buckley, among many others. Gordon’s most recent theatrical premieres include The House Without A Christmas Tree at Houston Grand Opera, and a two-act version of The Grapes of Wrath at Opera Theatre of St. Louis. In addition to the World Premiere of Ellen West at Opera Saratoga this summer, Gordon is currently working on his first commission for The Metropolitan Opera and Lincoln Center Theatre, Intimate Apparel, with Playwright Lynn Nottage. We are thrilled to welcome Gordon for a master class with pianist/singer teams from Opera Saratoga’s Young Artist Program, who will performing songs and arias specifically for them by the composer.”
