A program of concert versions of two works composed for Theatre of Yugen. Suki O’Kane presents music from the production Cordelia and Edward Schocker premieres The Darling Song Cycle -songs composed in conjunction with Yugen’s new production called A Minor Cycle.
The Darling Song Cycle is a new work of original songs by Edward Schocker and Greg Giovanni. Inspired by the humorous relationships of The Darling Family in the story Peter Pan, this work experiments with new storytelling approaches that expand theatrical and musical vocabularies.
Mrs. Darling: Tako Oda (voice)
Mr. Darling: Tomoko Schocker (voice)
Child: Sarah Willner (violin)
Child: Sean Carson (bass)
Child: Edward Schocker (guitar)
The Darling Song Cycle was created with the support of the East Bay Community Foundation’s East Bay Fund for Artists and the Zellerbach Family Foundation.
