The Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra kicks off its 90th Season with a commissioned work from William Bolcom, who has already found a way to have fun with the possibilities! Anyone who has been in Ann Arbor on a Saturday during a home football game (or who lives around its preparations for the entire season) will appreciate the elan that Bolcom has imbued in this new work for his “hometown” orchestra.

Dinner At Eight (Bolcom/Campbell – European Premiere) @ Wexford Festival Opera
Oct 20 @ 8:00 pm – 10:30 pm

Dinner at Eight

Music by William Bolcom. Libretto by Mark Campbell. Based on the play by George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber.

Set in Depression-era Manhattan, the Kaufman–Ferber play revolves around an ill-fated dinner organized by Millicent Jordan, a society hostess labeled “vapid” by the playwrights themselves. In the week preceding the party, Millicent’s husband, Oliver, is diagnosed with a fatal heart disorder and discovers that his struggling shipping line has become the object of a hostile takeover; their daughter Paula’s lover (dissipated matinée idol Larry Renault, also an invitee) stages a theatrical suicide; the guests of honor, an English lord and lady, blow off the engagement and decamp for Florida; and the cook’s pièce de résistance, a much-hyperbolized lobster in aspic, comes crashing to the kitchen floor… Based on the witty and biting depression-era play by George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber.
