2015 Bard SummerScape and the 26th Annual Bard Music Festival

Now in its 13th season, Bard SummerScape presents eight weeks of stellar events in opera, music, theater, dance, film, and cabaret.

The prime focus of these offerings is the 26th annual Bard Music Festival (August 7–9 and 14–16), which this year examines the life, times, and creative output of the 20th-century Mexican composer, conductor, and educator Carlos Chávez, whose compositions synthesize Indian, Spanish, and Mexican elements together with trends in European musical modernism. The festival will cover the range and breadth of Chávez’s career, including such well-known works as his Sinfonía india and his ballet for Martha Graham, La Hija de Cólquide (The Dark Meadow), along with music by such contemporaries as Aaron Copland, Conlon Nancarrow, Silvestre Revueltas, and Heitor Villa-Lobos. Other highlights of the SummerScape season include Ethel Smyth’s The Wreckers (July 24 – August 2), a rarely performed opera based on the nefarious tradition in Cornish coastal villages of plundering ships that were deliberately lured onto rocks; an exciting new chamber version of Oklahoma! by Rodgers and Hammerstein (June 25 – July 19); a dreamlike, alfresco theatrical production of Fernando Rubio’s Everything by my side (July 9–12); extraordinary dance works by Pam Tanowitz with FLUX Quartet (June 27–28), set to the music of Nancarrow; a film series exploring Mexican modernist cinema (July 11 – August 2); and the return of the Spiegeltent (July 3 – August 16) and its incomparable cabaret acts, presided over by Justin Vivian Bond. It all adds up to an unforgettable arts festival—SummerScape 2015.
