DARK SISTERS Original Opera Poster * Gotham Chamber Opera * NYC 14" x 22" Rare 2011 Mint New Condition. Large Original Poster for the Gotham Chamber Opera Production of Dark Sisters at the The Gerald W Lynch Theater ( John Jay College ), New York City. The barely legal lives of women in polygamous marriages may seem like fertile ground for an opera. Dark Sisters, composed by Nico Muhly with a libretto by Stephen Karam, has many attractive moments in music and story, yet demonstrates the difficulties of drawing art from life. Muhly’s music is attractive, especially to people who would otherwise avoid new music. His writing for voice shows a welcome understanding of vocal technique, and he sets the text in instinctive, meaningful ways. He never makes the chamber ensemble struggle to sound like a full orchestra, though this comes at the expense of a broader sonic sweep. The piece is well crafted, with scenes intuitively moving into each other, and none of the self-conscious moments that can happen with opera in English. Caitlyn Lynch was a clear-voiced Eliza, whose acting managed to make her story compelling. Margaret Lattimore sounded full and earthy as Presendia; Kevin Burdette was a believably menacing Father with a dark core to his sound. This production is a collaboration between Gotham Chamber Opera, Music Theatre Group, and Opera Company of Philadelphia.
