Taconic Opera to Premiere a New Oratorio, Enoch - Ossining United Methodist Church
Add to Calendar 02-03-2013 03-03-2013 15 Taconic Opera to Premiere a New Oratorio, Enoch Currently in its 15th season and the recipient of the Westchester County 2012 Arts Organization of the Year Award, Taconic Opera will be performing the world premiere performance and professional recording of the oratorio "Enoch" by the company's General and Artistic Director, Dan Montez. While both operas and oratorios are based on stories, operas deal more with history and mythology with a little bit of romance, deception and murder thrown in; oratorios most often contain sacred topics and the majority are based on biblical characters. While both musical forms include an orchestra, soloists and a chorus, opera is most often presented as musical theater, while oratorios are normally presented as concerts with no costumes, props or interactions between the characters. Dan Montez's "Enoch" is based on the life of the Old Testament prophet, Enoch, the father of Methuselah, who mysteriously disappeared from the Book of Genesis without explanation. Over 100 chapters of the Book of Enoch, lost for almost 2000 years, were discovered recently and translated from Hebrew, Aramaic and Ethiopian. Christian and Jewish scholars were surprised to find quotes from the Book of Enoch as many as 128 times in the Old Testament, more than any other book, and consider it to be scripture. The story is the antithesis of the Sodom story, inasmuch as a city becomes so righteous that is taken up into heaven. Enoch is called as the first scribe of heaven and first author of scripture. With a little help from Montez, the newly-discovered Enoch will now have his very own oratorio. The work will feature the Taconic Opera chorus, professional lead singers and full orchestra. Performances will be conducted under the baton of Dan Montez himself, who is delighted to debut the second of his oratorical compositions in Westchester County. "Enoch" will be sung in English and its musical influences include Faure, Ravel, and Poulenc. Those who come to the world premiere of the piece will have the opportunity to take part in the making of music history. The company will be presenting two performances of the oratorio in two locations: Saturday, March 2, 2013, at 7:30pm at the Ossining United Methodist Church, 1 Emwilton Place/corner of Route 9, Ossining, NY; and Sunday, March 3, 2013 at 3pm at the White Plains Presbyterian Church, 39 N. Broadway, White Plains, NY. Tickets can be purchased in advance online at taconicopera.org or by calling Taconic Opera's toll-free number 1-855-886-7372. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=129197 Ossining United Methodist Church true DD/MM/YYYY
