Subject: Center for Contemporary Opera. Next, the world premiere of Louis
Karchin's Jane Eyre

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

Many thanks to those that attended *Odysseus' Women* and *Anais Nin* by
Louis Andriessen at National Sawdust last Saturday. The house was sold-out!

You will not want to miss *Louis Karchin’s* *Jane Eyre*, a full-length
opera in three acts with a libretto by *Diane* *Osen* based on Charlotte
Bronte’s novel. *Jane Eyre *will receive its world premiere at the Kaye
Playhouse on Thursday, October 20, 7:30pm with a second performance on
Saturday, October 22, 8pm.  *Jane Eyre* is Karchin’s second opera, composed
in 2014, following his critically acclaimed one-act comic opera *Romulus*.
The work draws on a cast of 9 singers headed by *Jennifer Zetlan* and *Ryan*
*MacPherson*, an orchestra of 34 musicians, and chorus. Our production
coincides with the 200th anniversary year of the birth of Charlotte Bronte.
On the podium will be CCO’s Chief Conductor, Grammy nominated *Sara Jobin.*
Distinguished director *Kristine McIntyre, *who recently received an Emmy
nomination for her production of Janacek's *Jenufa,* makes her CCO debut.
Tickets are going fast.

*Jane Eyre, The Kaye Playhouse*

*October 20 at 7:30 Tickets

*October 22 at 8pm Tickets

We return to *National Sawdust *on October 26 and 27 for the world premiere
of *Sweat
the New Zealand-Canadian composer *Juliet Palmer *created with librettist *Anna
Chatterton*. *Sweat *is a full-length a cappella opera composed for 5
singers and chorus. The opera is a kaleidoscope of characters and stories
collected from factories around the world. The work offers a window into
the lives of the unseen millions hailing from Bangladesh, Vietnam, Italy,
China, India and the U.S., who work to clothe us and the high-flying
designers whose fantasies feed the fashion industry. *Giselle Ty* makes her
directing debut with CCO and we are very happy to welcome back
conductor *Lidiya

*Sweat, National Sawdust*

*October 26, 7pm Tickets

*Oct 27, 8pm Tickets

*Love Hurts
*Nicola Moro* will receive its U.S. premiere on October 28 at Symphony
Space. The librettist is *Lisa Hilton*, aka as L.S. Hilton, author of the
current bestseller “Maestra.” This opera was presented in its world
premiere on June 25, 2016 at Milan’s Teatro Piccolo as a collaboration with
the Associazione Solocanto. *Love Hurts*, a one-act opera set in 1814,
imagines the Marquis de Sade, in his lunatic asylum, re-enacting the trial
of notorious 15th century hero-turned-murderer Gilles de Rais, the
inspiration for the Bluebeard legend. *James Ross,* one of the U.K.'s
outstanding conductors joins us and the staging is by *Federica
Santambrogio *who delighted all of us with her direction of John Austin's*
Heloise and Abelard.*

We close our season on November 2 with a program by CCO’s

Simring*, a song cycle performed by *Jessica Fishenfeld*, soprano, *Scott
Joiner*, tenor and *Eric Sedgwick,* piano plus *Connection Lost

place at the* cell theatre* at 238 W. 23rd St.
