Vermont PBS is a proud media sponsor of Macbeth - Opera Company of Middlebury

Now in its 13th season of presenting full-scale productions in the intimate confines of Town Hall Theater, OCM presents Verdi’s Macbeth with a cast of professional singers directed by Douglas Anderson. The orchestra will be conducted by OCM’s musical director, internationally known conductor Emmanuel Plasson.

“With two of the most challenging roles in opera, you can’t even consider Macbeth unless you have two absolutely riveting singer-actors,” said Douglas Anderson, artistic director of OCM.  “We have them in Rochelle Bard, who sang a searing Violetta in our production of La Traviata two years ago, and Joshua Jeremiah, who starred as Athanael in our production of Thais.”

Macbeth premiered in Florence in 1847 and arrived in New York eleven years later. Though one of Verdi’s earliest works, it has a passionate, melodic score and an unrelieved intensity, and has lately been rediscovered as one of his masterworks.

OCM’s professional singers are cast from a lengthy audition process in New York and Vermont.  Rounding out the cast of Macbeth are Rubin Casas, who will sing the bass role of Banquo, and tenor Alok Kumar, last season’s triumphant Calàf, who will sing Macduff.   Tenor Yi Li will perform Malcolm.

Adopting an Artist is an enjoyable and personal way of supporting OCM. A link is made between you in the audience and the artist on stage or in the orchestra pit. Over the years several donors have formed fast friendships with young singers and musicians. Lend your support by sponsoring a singer or a musician at the level of your choosing.

Sid the Science Kid: The Movie follows Sid and his friend Gabriela through their adventure in The Super Ultimate Science Museum. After winning a science fair contest for creating an awesome science experiment, Sid and Gabriela are named “Junior Investigators” and get a special viewing of the new museum before it opens to the public. Once there, they meet quirky scientist Dr. Bonabodon, voiced by guest-star Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future), who has designed robot tour guides of the future, including Bobbybot, his greatest creation. When Sid and Gabriela are introduced to Yangyang and Niuniu, the impressive big-kid “Future Scientist” contest winners from China, they start to wonder if they really know their science stuff. Together the four pals observe giant honey bees, investigate robots, and even encounter a giant singing Tyrannosaurus Rex. But after their robot tour guide short circuits, Sid, Gabriela, Yangyang, and Niuniu have to work together and use science to try to save the day. Together, they learn that you can be a scientist at any age and that thinking like a kid is sometimes the best way to solve a problem!

Screening & discussion of POV: 15 to Life: Kenneth's Story. Does sentencing a teenager to life without parole serve our society well? The United States is the only country in the world that routinely condemns children to die in prison. This is the story of one of those children, now a young man, seeking a second chance in Florida. At age 15, Kenneth Young received four consecutive life sentences for a series of armed robberies. Imprisoned for more than a decade, he believed he would die behind bars. Now a U.S. Supreme Court decision could set him free. This film follows Young's struggle for redemption, revealing a justice system with thousands of young people serving sentences intended for society's most dangerous criminals.
