2014 FSOM Jackie O—Frost Opera Theater
UM Gusman Concert Hall
Saturday, April 12, 2014 at 7:30PM
at Gusman Concert Hall
1314 Miller Drive
Frost Opera Theater’s season concludes with a staged production of the opera Jackie O by Michael Daugherty and Wayne Koestenbaum. Opera and American musical theater come together in this pop operatic collage in which the private and public life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis encounters Maria Callas, Liz Taylor, Ari Onassis, Grace Kelly, and Andy Warhol. Jackie O is an opera in two acts in which events are based on history, but are largely imaginary or metaphorical. American composer Michael Daugherty (2011 Grammy Award winner for Best Classical Composition—Metropolis Symphony) and librettist Wayne Koestenbaum (author of The Queen’s Throat and Jackie Under My Skin) capture the mystery, tragedy and glamor of an American icon.
Opening night will include a post-performance talk back with composer Michael Daugherty, and librettist Wayne Koestenbaum.
