Jamie Chamberlin, featured soprano on Delos release Terrain of the Heart, has the plum role of legendary Hollywood actress Marilyn Monroe in Long Beach Opera’s upcoming production of Gavin Bryars’ Marilyn Forever. LBO describes Marilyn Forever as an examination of “Monroe’s intellectual and emotional relationship to death and love. As the work progresses, the performance interweaves what is taking place on stage with the trajectory of Monroe’s life through relationships, fame and myth. Ultimately, the characters of the musicians as performers and men in Monroe’s life fuse with the forces that lead to her death.”
Performances will be on Saturday, March 21, and Sunday, March 29, at the Warner Grand Theatre in San Pedro, Ca. For more information, see: www.longbeachopera.org
Jamie has also been cast in LBO’s final production of the season, the Philip Glass/Allen Ginsberg collaboration Hydrogen Jukebox, set for May 30, June 6 and June 7.
