TACONIC OPERA World premiere of new oratorio, JOSEPH , Croton-on-Hudson (Matinees March 25 & 26, 2023)

Currently celebrating its 25th Anniversary Season and past recipient of the ArtsWestchester Organization of the Year Award, Taconic Opera invites you to the world premiere performance of an original oratorio composed by the company’s director, Dan Montez: Joseph. All performances will include professional lead singers, the Taconic Opera Orchestra and Chorus, and will be conducted by the composer himself.


The composition is based on the well-known scriptural figure, Joseph, Jacob’s son with his coat of many colors.  Sold by his brothers into slavery in Egypt, he eventually becomes powerful and saves his family and the Israelites from desolation.  Nearly three hundred years have passed since anyone has set this sacred narrative as an oratorio.


The work will be performed at the Holy Name of Mary Church, 110 Grand St., Croton-on-Hudson, on Saturday, March 25 and Sunday, March 26 at 3:00 pm. This beautiful venue is handicap accessible and is ideally suited for live sacred music of this caliber due to its acoustical and architectural properties.


The 7th in a series of biblical themes, Montez’s style for this particular oratorio uses impressionistic and quartal harmonies and textures.  Others in the series include Enoch, Jonah, Daniel, Job, David and Esther, all of which premiered to rave reviews. Audience and critics’ comments have included: “Breathtaking!”, “I am in awe.”, “Sweeping harmonic and melodic gestures.”, and “Glorious!”
