Back Bay Chorale

"The Outer Edge of Youth", A Choral Opera by Scott Ordway
Amy Nicole Broadbent, soprano
Emily Marvosh, contralto

Commissioned by The Thirteen, Scott Ordway's "The Outer Edge of Youth" is a choral opera that explores and critiques the relationships between childhood, landscape, aesthetics, and contemporary ideals of masculinity. The Washington Classical Review calls it "a hypnotic, haunting fable…The Outer Edge of Youth has both the solemnity and wonder of an oratorio and the heightened emotion wrung from the enhanced reality in which opera specializes…the music shimmers, soars, and settles…creating an ecstatic catharsis.”

Conducted by Emily Isaacson, BBC Music Director Finalist and Guest Conductor
