    New York City

    Toshio Hosokawa’s The Raven, a monodrama for mezzo-soprano and twelve instrumentalists, will be given its U.S. Premiere as part of the New York Philharmonic’s inaugural NY PHIL BIENNIAL festival. Directed and choreographed by Luca Veggetti, it will star mezzo-soprano Fredrika Brillembourg and dancer Alessandra Ferri, former prima ballerina assoluta with the Royal Ballet, American Ballet Theatre and La Scala Theatre Ballet. The performance will be conducted by Neal Goren, Artistic Director.

    Based on the narrative poem by Edgar Allan Poe, The Raven tells the story of a man visited by a raven after the death of his lover. To all the questions the man asks, the raven only answers, ‘nevermore’. After drifting through states of different emotions, the narrator, still burdened with the loss of his beloved, finally lays down in the raven’s shadow, his soul trapped and lifted ‘nevermore’.

    The program also includes Conte fantastique: Le Masque de la Mort rouge (d’après une des Histoires extraordinaires d’Edgar Poë), by André Caplet.
