The Trilogy – Juilliard Opera Center (2008) –

Intriguing Operatic Trilogy at Juilliard Takes Dim View of Marriage

One musician who has been behind many efforts to recover lost or forgotten music of this era has been James Conlon, who conceived and conducted this intense and intermissionless trilogy.

Chinese bass-baritone Shenyang persuasively took principal roles of Podkolyosin and Bronza with the full cast of the trilogy joining him in seeing the light in James Marvel’s realization.

Kudos for making this unusual trilogy a satisfying experience goes principally to Conlon, director James Marvel and the rest of the production team.
