Demon

by Anton Rubinstein

2018, Sosnoff Theater, SummerScape

Rubinstein’s operatic masterpiece is based on a poem depicting the isolation and despair of a fallen angel. Premiered to great acclaim in 1871, Demon received its first fully staged U.S. performances at Bard in 2018. With rich choral writing and a fiery libretto, the production was staged by Thaddeus Strassberger and featured an all-Russian cast, Pesvebi Georgian Dancers and The American Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Maestro Botstein.
