Taconic Opera - This is the second oratorio composed by Westchester-based Dan Montez, Artistic Director of Taconic Opera. It is based on the life of the Old Testament prophet, Enoch, father of Methuselah, who mysteriously disappeared from the Book of Genesis without explanation. Over 100 chapters of the Book of Enoch, lost for almost 2000 years, were discovered recently and translated from Hebrew, Aramaic and Ethiopian. Christian and Jewish scholars were surprised to find quotes from the Book of Enoch as many as 128 times in the Old Testament, more than any other book, and consider it to be scripture. Featuring professional soloists, chorus and full orchestra, the work will be performed in English and contains influences from Ravel, Fauré and Poulenc.
