João MacDowell makes his Scandinavia House début with his third opera Cries and Whispers. Freely inspired by Ingmar Bergman’s 1972 film of the same name and the Greek myth of Hecate, the story centers on three sisters – Laura, Dina, and Betty – as they prepare for the imminent death of the youngest.
The roles of Laura, Dina, and Betty will be performed by the sopranos Kristin Young, Alexandra Filipe, and Brooke Larimer. Conducted by Néviton Barros.
Performed in English.
The International Brazilian Opera Company premiered an excerpt from the opera in March 2014. In the Summer of the same year João MacDowell completed the opera, during an artistic residency at The Ingmar Bergman Estate on Fårö, Sweden.
