  • Emily Bear Jazz Trio

    Saturday, November 1, 2014 - 7:00 P.M. - Sedona Performing Arts Center

    In his illustrious career, Quincy Jones had seen it all – or so he may have thought before he came across Emily Bear. Only 13 years old, Emily is one of the most astonishing musical talents of our time – composing, orchestrating, and performing in a bewilderingly diverse collection of styles. Some of her huge talent is on display in the appropriately-named album Diversity, her first album for Concord Records/Quest Records, which Jones produced.

    Count Almaviva, a scheming, bullying, skirt-chaser, is thwarted by the Countess, the head of his servant-staff Figaro, and the Countess' servant Susanna in a sexy comedy full of misdirection and fascinating plot-twists resulting in a shamed Count begging his wife's forgiveness and happiness for all.

    "A sparkling new production... joyful music-making... The youthful cast dug into their roles with gusto and sang with style... A memorable performance of Mozart's immortal comedy." - Associated Press

    "A swiftly paced, playful evening... Eyre skillfully built the comic ensembles to climaxes that made you laugh out loud... A happy Marriage at the Met." - Wall Street Journal

    "A ravishing, intricately wrought evening of music, humor and emotional depth... An evening like this is the strongest argument for the continued vigor of the Met." - New York Magazine

    "James Levine, making his first appearance on an opening night in four years, led an appealing cast and the great Met orchestra in an eloquent, richly detailed performance of this multilayered Mozart masterpiece." Ildar Abdrazakov "brings a dark, solid voice and stylish phrasing to Figaro"... Peter Mattei as Count Almaviva is "terrific. His voice has depth, body and lyrical allure." Amanda Majeski's voice "is ample and expressive...she sang with nuance and taste and made a vulnerable countess." As Susanna, Marlis Petersen's "singing is clean and beautiful, but also unusually textured and plush for the part." – The New York Times
