A LITTLE ABOUT AMOC
AMOC is an opera company on a new model. Led by Artistic Directors Matthew Aucoin and Zack Winokur, the company serves as the artistic home for seventeen of the most exciting singers, dancers, and instrumentalists of the rising generation. The company’s goal is to create a body of new, discipline-colliding music-theater works, conceived, developed, and performed by our artists.
Hailed as “blindingly impressive” and “preternaturally talented” in The New York Times, AMOC has appeared at the Metropolitan Museum of Art; ODC Theater in San Francisco; The Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, MA; Big Ears Festival in Knoxville, TN; and National Sawdust in Brooklyn; among others. Just in its second season, AMOC has held a performance and teaching residency at Harvard University, was Artist-in-Residence at Park Avenue Armory, and established an annual Run AMOC! Festival with the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, MA.
A LITTLE ABOUT EL CIMARRÓN
Hans Werner Henze's El Cimarrón (The Runaway Slave) is a tour-de-force sonic onslaught based on the oral autobiography of Esteban Montejo, an Afro-Cuban slave who escaped bondage on a sugar plantation, survived in the jungle, fought for Cuban independence from Spain, and lived to tell about it all before dying at the age of 113. Henze's visceral score is a cry for freedom that transcends time and place—and a linchpin in AMOC soprano Julia Bullock's vision for her season as Artist-in-Residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
