Orpheus stands up for justice and freedom in this homage to courageous voices. Beethoven, an unyielding critic of despots, channeled his ardor and rage into music for Goethe’s historical drama about a local hero defying foreign occupiers. Liev Schreiber narrates an incisive new translation by Philip Boehm, while the clarion voice of Karen Slack and Orpheus illuminate the eternal truths of Egmont. Will Liverman, the “muscular-voiced baritone,” (The New York Times) joins for the World Premiere of Songs of Paul by Jasmine Barnes, a 125th birthday tribute to the singer-activist Paul Robeson.
