Anton Rubinstein’s “Demon” And "Rimsky-Korsakov and His World" At Bard

Artwork for events at Bard

Anton Rubinstein’s opera “Demon” opens tonight at Bard SummerScape, in a new production by frequent SummerScape director Thaddeus Strassberger. Anchored by the American Symphony Orchestra under music director and festival coartistic director Leon Botstein, the new staging represents an all-too-rare opportunity to see one of 19th-century Russia’s most popular operas in the West. The opera features the Bard Festival Chorale under the direction of James Bagwell.

And that’s not all that’s coming up at Bard – not by a longshot.

The 29th annual Bard Music Festival presents a two-week, in-depth exploration of “Rimsky-Korsakov and His World” in twelve themed concert programs, complemented by pre-concert lectures, panel discussions, and expert commentary.

We are joined by Artistic Co-Director of Bard Music Festival Christopher Gibbs and James Bagwell, Choral Master James Bagwell.
