American Modern Opera Company (AMOC) returns for its second annual Run AMOC! Festival December 14 – 16, 2018. The “hot-bed of boundary-pushing, inventive, chance-taking artists” (ZEALnyc) will present four pieces featuring company members at venues around Harvard Square in Cambridge.
AMOC is a new kind of opera company—comprised of a diverse collective of singers, dancers, instrumentalists, a director, and a composer—that aims to expand the definition and reach of opera in our world through collaborative, interdisciplinary work. 2018 MacArthur Fellow composer/conductor/pianist/poet Matthew Aucoin (Crossing at the A.R.T., Harvard ’12) and director/choreographer/dancer Zack Winokur (The Black Clown at the A.R.T.) serve as Artistic Directors.
