Available Now from Bridge Records: CD of ASO’s live performance of The Long Christmas Dinner!
Were you there that memorable evening just before last Christmas, when ASO performed Paul Hindemith’s The Long Christmas Dinner at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center? The one-act opera is based on the one-act play by Thornton Wilder, and Wilder also wrote the libretto. Immediately following a performance of the play, directed by Jonathan Rosenberg, ASO took the stage and the opera was performed on the same set with a cast of wonderful singers including Camille Zamora and Sara Murphy. If you weren’t there, you missed a great production of the play, but you can still hear the magnificent opera, to be released in July by Bridge Records.
This is the only recording of the opera available with Wilder’s original libretto, sung in English.
