It appears that the days of staged and/or remixed recital presentations might signal the future direction of the song cycle. I've already mentioned Hoi Pollio's irreverent Schubertian romp in the snow - also this month, Chicago Opera Vanguard is offering a staged version of Schubert's Winterreise starring baritone Brad Jungwirth and pianist/musical director Byron Silverstein.
The first two performances have already sold out, and the following shows are coming up in the next few weeks at the Fasseas White Box Theater at the Menomonee Club Drucker Center:
8pm Friday March 12
8pm Saturday March 13
4pm Sunday March 14
8pm Monday March 15 ($15 Industry Night for arts workers)
8pm Friday March 19
8pm Saturday March 20
4pm Sunday March 21
Tickets are $25/10. This is definitely a production to check out if you're in the Chicago area.
