University Singers: Gian Carlo Menotti’s The Unicorn, the Gorgon, and the Manticore

Bienen School of Music at Mary B. Galvin Recital Hall
70 Arts Circle Drive, Chicago, IL, 60208 | directions

Albert Pinsonneault, conductor; Hannah Dixon McConnell, graduate assistant conductor; Charles Foster, accompanist Composer-librettist Gian Carlo Menotti’s brilliant choral-madrigal drama The Unicorn, the Gorgon, and the Manticore is fable, fantasy, and autobiography. Written for nine instruments and chorus, the concert-length work is divided into twelve choral madrigals and seven instrumental interludes. The chorus acts as both narrator and individual characters in an unfolding drama about shallow and faddish townspeople, a strange man in a castle, and his three animal companions—which may also represent the three phases of Menotti’s life.
