A contemporary spin on the works of Goethe
and the music of Hugo Wolf
May 07, 2011

Boston Court's Fall Music Series generously sponsored by Elaine Kramer and Al Latham.

Boston Court's Fall Music Series is made possible in part by the Pasadena Arts & Culture Commission and the City of Pasadena Cultural Affairs Division.

FINDING PARADISE LOST is a story of survival and hope in the midst of devastating lost.  When John and Marianne lose their daughter, their relationship teeters on the brink of demise. A creation of members of the Thornton School of Music Vocal Arts program, Wolf's stunning settings of Goethe's moving poetry is used to maximum effect in this one act presentation that takes us on a journey to re-discovering the paradise that we so often lose sight of in the face of personal disaster.

This performance piece is the result of the collaboration of two courses in the Thornton School of Music:  SpecialStudies in Vocal Repertoire taught by Professor Lisa Sylvester, vocal arts faculty in diction, repertoire and coaching and Directing for the Operatic Stage taught by Professor Ken Cazan, resident stage director for Thornton Opera, vocal arts faculty.

An original script created by students of Ken Cazan's Directing for the Operatic Stage class and performances by graduate vocal arts and keyboard collaborative arts majors under the musical direction of Lisa Sylvester.
