August 2, 2014: On Site Opera and The Phoenicia International Festival of the Voice announce a workshop of Clarimonde, a new opera from composer Frédéric Chaslin and librettist P.H. Fisher. Chaslin himself will conduct and OSO Artistic Director Eric Einhorn will direct a cast featuring Alyson Cambridge, Dominic Armstrong, Clayton Mathews and Louis Otey. 
ClarimondeClarimonde is an adaptation of Théophile Gautier’s La Morte Amoureuse (1836), a short story in the genre of the conte fantastique where science fiction, fantasy and magic realism merge. La Morte Amoureuse is a classic tale of the supernatural in which a young, handsome priest, Romualdo, falls in love with the beautiful vampiress Clarimonde, whom he first encounters on the day of his ordination ceremony. Clarimonde is not a neck-biting, ghoulish creature with fangs; rather, she is an exquisite, alluring courtesan who genuinely falls in love with Romualdo. She believes that his love for her (and his pure, priestly blood) will redeem her, rescuing her from the eternal doom created by The Maker, the dark vampire master. The tough and wise Bishop Serapion learns of Clarimonde’s seduction of Romualdo and wages a battle to save not only Romualdo’s physical life, but also his very soul.

Who We Are:
Since celebrated director Eric Einhorn founded it in 2012, On Site Opera has done much to prove that exciting opera can happen outside the walls of a traditional theater. The company has garnered acclaim not only for the immersive, site-specific nature of its productions—Shostakovich’s The Tale of the Silly Baby Mouse at the Bronx Zoo, Gershwin’s Blue Monday at the Cotton Club in Harlem, and, most recently, Rameau’s Pygmalion at Madame Tussauds New York and the Lifestyle-Trimco mannequin showroom—but also for their rigor. Reviewing Baby Mouse, Steve Smith wrote in The New York Times that the production “enchanted audience members of all ages,” and added, “connoisseurs, meanwhile, could hardly miss the seriousness and skill of the undertaking.” Committed to exploring new technology in opera, On Site Opera implemented the first-ever Google Glass supertitles during its recent production of Rameau’s Pygmalion of which The Verge reported “Few things seem like obvious fits for Google Glass so far, but this is one of them.” On Site Opera, a registered 501(c)(3), is a member of Opera America and the New York Opera Alliance.
