In a reimagining of Pulitzer Prize-nominated composer John Musto’s one-act opera, which first premiered at The Clarice in 2007 in a joint project with the National Gallery of Art, audiences are transported to 1932 New York City for one extended evening. Co-commissioned by the UMD School of Music and The Clarice, Later the Same Evening is inspired by figures in five Edward Hopper paintings of Manhattan: “Room in New York” (1932), “Hotel Window” (1955), “Hotel Room” (1931), “Two on the Aisle” (1927) and “Automat” (1927). As the opera unfolds, the characters from the paintings vividly come to life to intertwine in interesting ways centered around the solitude that a large, bustling city can invoke.
