Mezzo-soprano Jazimina MacNeil and soprano Sarah Shafer join Odds Bodkin for the premier of DANIKA THE ROSE: The Adult Version. Two angelic voices with a piano accompaniment interweave duets with Odds Bodkin’s powerful new tale, featuring voices for Danika, Dano the Arrow, Duke Maximilian, and many others.
Along with writing symphonies, composer Antonin Dvorak also wrote a set of Moravian Duets for female voices. Odds Bodkin’s original fairy tale, Danika the Rose, is crafted around story episodes suggested by Dvorak’s songs.
In this first of its kind performance, Odds tells the tale of lovely young Danika, a girl trapped between an evil duke’s desires and a faithful huntsman’s love. Weaving through the magic-filled tale are Dvorak’s classical duets, sung by Jazimina MacNeil and Sarah Shafer, accompanied at the piano by Emely Phelps.
