The Rake’s Progress
by Igor Stravinsky
Stravinsky’s neoclassical dark comedy. Young star tenor Ben Bliss is the cad Tom Rakewell, alongside soprano Golda Schultz as the virtuous Anne Trulove and bass-baritone Christian Van Horn as the diabolical Nick Shadow. Stravinsky built the score around stylistic references to the work of earlier composers while also maintaining a sense of the uncanny, even macabre, that is distinctly modern.Susanna Mälkki
