|Baritone John Moore|
Moore will perform Poulenc's Le Bal masque (A Masked Ball), in a program that also includes Pierre Boulez's Dérive 1 and Messiaen's Quatuor pour la fin du temps. Tickets are available online.
Poulenc's Le Bal masque was commissioned by the Vicomte and Vicomtesse de Noailles for a 1932 concert at the Théâtre de Hyères. The text is taken from Max Jacob's 1921 anthology Laboratoire central. The score calls for a solo baritone, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, trumpet, piano, violin, cello, and percussion with the melodies passed from instrument to instrument, which adds Poulenc's trademark musical wit to the text.
On December 16th, he'll be Philadelphia performing Bach's Ich habe genug, BWV 82 at St. Mark's Church with the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society.
Upcoming stage performances for Moore include his debut with the Seattle Opera in February 2016 as Count Almavivia in Mozart's Le nozze di Figaro (with fellow barihunk Aubrey Allicock as Figaro), his debut with the Bayerische Staatsoper in July 2016 as Adario in Rameau's Les indes galantes as well as Tadeusz in Weinberg's The Passenger with Florida Grand Opera, Papageno in Mozart's Die Zauberflöte, and Figaro in Opera Omaha's production of Rossini's Il barbiere di Siviglia.
