Steven Ebel will be the first singer in the history of London's Royal Opera House to perform his own composition under their auspices. The work entitled, The Diary of a Young Poet, will be given its world premiere on October 8th at 7:30pm in the Clore Studio. Mr. Ebel is a member of ROH's Jette Parker Young Artist Programme which commissioned the song cycle. The work is based on selected texts from Rainer Maria Rilke's "Worpswede Diary" which dramatizes Rilke as a young man struggling with and finding faith. The piece runs approximately forty minutes and is written for narrator, tenor (Mr. Ebel) and piano. The original poems and the narration are in English and are taken from the prose selections of the Diary. Mr. Ebel performs The Diary of a Young Poet twice more within the context of a larger program entitled "The Truth About Love" which will also include works by Robert Schumann and Benjamin Britten. Within this program Mr. Ebel's new cycle will be creatively integrated with those of Schumann and Britten. This unique musical and theatrical event takes place at ROH's Linbury Studio Theatre on October 13 and 15 at 7:30pm.
