Eric Salzman, CCO’s Composer in Residence, died suddenly of a heart attack related to dialysis on November 13, 2017. He served CCO for many years and was a wonderful human being. Our sympathies go to his wife Lorna, and daughters Eva and Stephanie. As more details are known, we will pass them on.
Thank you to all for making CCO’s 34th Festival Season a great success. We mounted five productions within three weeks and hosted appreciative audiences. The excellent reviews are in from the NY Times, Wall Street Journal, Superconductor, (Q) on Stage, and with more coming from Opera News, Opera (London), The New Criterion, and Opernwelt (Berlin) among others.
Thank you as always for your support and we look forward to seeing you next season.
CCO’s 2016 Festival off to an auspicious start!
CCO’s 2016 Festival is off to an auspicious start, with two completed productions that were critically successful and wonderfully well attended. Just ask Anthony Tomassini of the New York Times, who called our first two productions “vivid,” “daring,” and “compelling” in his review.
Audiences can continue to explore the rest of our compelling offerings in our three final productions: Sweat by Juliet Palmer / Anna Chatterton presented in collaboration with National Sawdust on October 26th and 27th, Love Hurts by Nicola Moro / Lisa Hilton at Symphony Space on October 28th at Symphony Space, and Cassandra Ground Zero by Eric Salzman / Eva Salzman at the Cell Theater on November 2nd.
We hope you will join us for one of these exciting programs, and thank you for your continued support!
