AGRIPPINA 
Music by George Frideric Handel 
Libretto by Cardinal Vincenzo Grimani 
Brian McCann, conductor 
Alison Pogorelc, director 
Machinations, mind games and unabashed ambitions are rampant in the court of Claudius, Emperor of Rome. No one is more adept at manipulating the political lackeys than his clever wife, Agrippina, sister of the emperor Claudius overthrew. Power-hungry and keen on revenge, Agrippina will stab just about anyone in the back to get what she wants — her son Nero seated on the throne. When Claudius names his favorite general as his successor, Agrippina will have to play her cards just right. Considered Handel’s earliest masterpiece, sex, intrigue and sharp humor fuel this biting political satire. 
Estimated run time: 2 hours and 15 minutes, including intermission 
Location: Cohen Family Studio Theater 
Tickets: $23.50; student and group discounts available.

EXPANSION, CONTRACTION, AND TRANSFORMATION: THE CREATION OF SACRED SPACE THROUGH MUSIC FOR COMMUNAL HEALING AND SOCIAL JUSTICE 
Lisa Osunleti Beckley-Roberts, Associate Professor of Musicology from Jackson State University 
Through the study and exploration of African and diasporic music and movement practices, the author shares experiences with facilitating communal healing in the planning, preparation, and performance of a work in honor of Trayvon Martin. This paper explores the ways that the terms expansion and contraction, borrowed from Ifa cosmology of the Yoruba ethnic group, may be applied to the practice of reimagining African and African diaspora music and dance, in order to respond to and navigate the emotional turmoil of social injustice. Furthermore, additional instances of the use of music and the reimagining of musical ideas have been used to aid in communal healing.

MOURNING AND MANEUVERING: MUSICAL PRACTICE AND THE NEW TRAUMAS OF RECONSTRUCTION 
Thomas Kernan, Associate Dean of the Chicago College of Performing Arts and Associate Professor of Music History at Roosevelt University 
In recent years American journalists, activists, and scholars have devoted significant attention to identifying, examining, and in many cases removing statues of Confederate Civil War generals from public spaces. One element of the case for statue removal has been that most of these statues never held a close chronological connection to the war; rather, they were the products of twentieth-century segregationists. This is an important point, as it demonstrates the way in which segregationists activated war memory to make overtly racist claims many decades later. However, the argument about the comparatively late arrival of these statues to public squares often obscures our understanding of a different type of commemoration—an aural one—that occurred in these same locales. 

Decades prior to placement of a bronze Robert E. Lee or marble Stonewall Jackson, many American parks, plazas, and boulevards where marked as commemorative spaces hostile to Black life. Musical compositions and performances, perhaps more holistically than other types of sources, allow us to recognize the ways in which spaces that excluded Black Americans during the period of slavery were swiftly reaffirmed as places hostile to Black lives during Reconstruction. To this end, the trauma of having a Confederate monument in a public space in 2022 is connected to a consistent trauma of having had crowds of people singing songs of the segregationist narrative during the crucial interregnum of Reconstruction. While physical monuments were added later, they had musical precursors that are relevant in recognizing the ways in which musical practices predate physical manifestations of Confederate commemoration.

FELLOW TRAVELERS 
An Opera by Gregory Spears 
Libretto by Greg Pierce 
Based on the 2007 novel “Fellow Travelers” by Thomas Mallon 
Buddy Langley, conductor 
Daria Zholnerova, co-director 
Greg Eldridge, co-director  
Based on the 2007 novel by Thomas Mallon, Fellow Travelers was originally workshopped at CCM in 2013 as part of the college’s Opera Fusion: New Works (OF:NW) partnership with Cincinnati Opera. Cincinnati Opera presented the world premiere of Fellow Travelers in 2016 with a production that was conducted by CCM faculty member Mark Gibson and featured several alumni in the cast. A decade after its OF:NW workshop, Fellow Travelers finally makes its debut on the CCM stage! Fellow Travelers takes place in 1950s Washington, D.C. Timothy Laughlin is a recent Fordham graduate and devout Catholic who is eager to join the crusade against Communism. A chance encounter with a handsome, profligate State Department official, Hawkins Fuller, leads to Tim’s first job in D.C. and — after Fuller’s advances — his first love affair. As McCarthy mounts his desperate bid for power and internal investigations focus on “sexual subversives” during the “Lavender Scare,” Tim and Hawk find it dangerous to navigate their double lives. Drawn into a maelstrom of deceit and intrigue, Tim struggles to reconcile his political convictions, his love for God and his love for Fuller — an entanglement that will end in a stunning act of betrayal.
