2:30pm: Martha Graham Dance Company: Martha Matinee Night Journey is one of Martha Graham’s greatest masterworks. It tells the Oedipus story through the eyes of his wife and mother Jocasta. Night Journey Choreography and Costumes by Martha Graham Music by William Schuman Set by Isamu Noguchi Original lighting by Jean Rosenthal Adapted by Beverly Emmons Premiere: May 3, 1947, Cambridge High School, Cambridge, Massachusetts “And loudly o’er the bed she wailed where she / In twofold wedlock, hapless, had brought forth / Husband from a husband, children from a child. / We could not know the moment of her death / Which followed soon.” – Sophocles In Night Journey, it is not Oedipus but Queen Jocasta who is the protagonist. The action of the dance turns upon that instant of her death when she relives her destiny and sees with double insight the triumphal entry of Oedipus, their meeting, courtship, marriage, their years of intimacy which were darkly crossed by the blind seer Tiresias until at last the truth burst from him. The chorus of women, who know the truth before the seer speaks it, tries in vain to divert the prophecy’s cruel conclusion.

7:30: Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette Gounod first composed Roméo et Juliette, as he had Faust, in the form of an “opéra dialogué”—that is, with spoken dialogue rather than recitative: “The audience’s musical attention should not be tired by the sound of chatter and padding; the audience should be afforded rests and pauses, except where the pathos of the work is at stake.” By the time of the premiere at the Théâtre Lyrique on April 27, 1867, however, he had been persuaded to provide recitatives. Despite the opera’s immediate success (a total of 89 performances in the first season, no doubt due in part to the Universal Exposition in Paris that year), the process of turning Roméo into a grand opera would continue over some two decades. Georges Bizet had a hand in the modifications for the move to the Opéra Comique in January 1873, as Gounod was in London at the time. When, after 291 performances at the Comique, Roméo was again transferred, this time to the Opéra, Gounod made still further changes, notably the addition of a wedding ballet and a big ensemble. The cast for this gala occasion, on November 28, 1888, included Adelina Patti (Juliette), Jean de Reszke (Roméo), Leon Melchissédec (Mercutio), and Edouard de Reszke (Friar Laurence), with the composer on the podium.
