In this half-hour lecture that accompanies The Met: Live in HD screening of IOLANTA /BLUEBEARD’S CASTLE, accomplished composer and dynamic speaker Victoria Bond reveals insights into the opera’s story and the artistry of the music. Victoria Bond, a major force in 21st century concert music, leads a dual career as composer and conductor. Her compositions have been praised by The New York Times as “powerful, stylistically varied and technically demanding” and her conducting has been called “impassioned” by The Wall Street Journal. Ms. Bond produces Cutting Edge Concerts New Music Festival in New York and is a frequent lecturer for the New York Philharmonic.
