Dutch director Jorinde Keesmaat is invited by the Center for Contemporary Opera, New York, to direct a series of four productions over a three-year period.
Three works will be by Dutch composers and one work from an American composer. The residency begins in October 2016 with a production consisting of two works by Louis Andriessen: Anaïs Nin & Odysseus’ Women. This production will also take place at the Muziekgebouw aan het IJ in Amsterdam on 9 December 2016.
The core of the three-year collaboration between CCO and Jorinde contains four fully staged opera productions. The well-known American dramaturge Cori Ellison, and composer Eric Salzman will serve as her mentor during her residency. Next to the four productions CCO involves Jorinde in the workshops who are held to develop new opera’s. She will work with American video- and costume designers and musical directors and will be directly involved in the casting of all projects. In addition to her directing responsibilities, the CCO will invite Jorinde to join the artistic staff of the Center for Contemporary Opera with the title 'Guest Director in Residence'.reference:jorindekeesmaat.nl
