Bartok’s Bluebeard’s Castle

Just married, a young woman begins exploring every nook and cranny of her new castle home. But instead of vintage charm, she finds out much more about her husband—a guy by the seemingly innocent name of Bluebeard—than she bargained for. Bartok’s chilling one-act opera, sung in-concert with direction from Joanie Schultz, thunders to life thanks to a 58-piece ensemble and two remarkable voices: internationally acclaimed bass Andrea Silvestrelli, and American soprano Kara Shay Thomson, owner of what the New York Times has described as “a plush, vibrant, powerful voice.”

Beyond the musical talent, there’s another star: the space itself. Performers appear throughout the castle-like Thalia Hall, enveloping the audience in the story and rendering the stage just another patch of open space. After bows are taken, the hall undergoes another transformation. Chicago DJ, orchestra musician, and executive director DoJo strikes up a dance party complete with cash bar and mingling with musicians.

New Millennium Orchestra of Chicago

Led by music director Francesco Milioto, the ensemble of nearly 30 leaps from classical to contemporary, working in live remixes, improv, mixed media, world music, and the occasional dance party along the way. The ensemble has a particular knack for opera—recent performances include Der Kaiser Von Atlantis, presented for free at the Pritzker Pavilion, and Verdi's Joan of Arc, a collaboration with Chicago Opera Theater.
