he American Modern Opera Company (AMOC) returns to the Clark this summer for another distinctive artistic intervention staged on locations around the Clark’s grounds in a free afternoon of music, dance, poetry, and inspiration.
Performances feature AMOC’s Co-Artistic Directors Matthew Aucoin and Zack Winokur, AMOC violinists Miranda Cuckson and Keir GoGwilt, percussionist Jonny Allen, dancer/choreographer Julia Eichten, cellist Coleman Itzkoff, and countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo.
Bring a blanket or lawn chair and enjoy the outdoor performances. The afternoon concludes with a special concert in the Clark’s auditorium. In case of inclement weather, all performances will be moved indoors. Free and open to the public.
The American Modern Opera Company (AMOC) is an opera company based on a new model. The company serves as the artistic home for seventeen of the most exciting singers, dancers, and instrumentalists of the rising generation. AMOC’s artists are committed to reimagining what it means to make opera in the twenty-first century: unlike a typical opera company, which features a constantly changing roster of artists in one particular theater, AMOC focuses on deep, long-term artistic relationships among its core members. The company’s goal is to create a body of new, discipline-colliding music-theater works that are conceived, developed, and performed by its artists.
