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.

About the Maryland Opera Studio: Under the direction of Craig Kier, the Maryland Opera Studio is dedicated to the future of opera. Preparing the next generation of great singers and offering performances ranging from classic repertoire to provocative new works, it is building contemporary audiences for opera and advancing the art that sustains them.

The Art of Becoming, Power and Passion: The More I Am, The More I Become.

The Clarice’s BlackLight Summit aims to activate the unimagined possibilities in dance–it is a convening that envisions dance as a conduit to galvanize resilience and inventiveness. Returning for a second year, the 2022 summit explores three fundamental inquiries: “What/who are we becoming?” “How do we return to one another?” and “Does progress equal healing?” Throughout the 2021–22 season, the BlackLight Summit will continue to foster community connection by facilitating a series of mentoring and professional development opportunities, conversations and performances.

Health + Safety: There may be COVID safety policies such as mask requirements in place when you attend this event. Please see our health & safety page for the most up to date information about attendance!

Registration is required for all BlackLight Summit events. Registration is free and open to all! Please note: BlackLight Summit registration does not include access to Far From the Norm. For tickets to this performance, please visit go.umd.edu/fftn.
