Feral: A New Chamber Opera by Martin Brody
Ecce Ensemble announces its latest immersive project: a residency at Wellesley college culminating in the premiere of composer Martin Brody’s opera Feral. (This year is Brody’s first away from Wellesley College after over 40 years of service to the Music Department.) Based on a medieval text by Marie de France, Feral tells the story of a knight trapped in animal form and banished from human society who is hunted, captured, domesticated, and eventually returned to human form. In Brody’s adaptation, the central character is performed by movement artist Colin Gee, a frequent Ecce collaborator. Brody, who has served as the Andrew Heiskell Arts Director at the American Academy in Rome and is a member of its board of trustees, is a prolific composer and author with expertise in 20th-century music. This premiere will be a significant contribution to the New England arts season.
Ecce is an ensemble of culturally and socially engaged creative and performing artists. Core to their mission is performance of new music of all kinds and collaboration with creative performers and thinkers across disciplines. Their activities encompass an annual concert season and a summer music festival, during which they teach and perform the works of a new generation of artists.
This performance will also be livestreamed at wellesley.edu/live.
