Program Note

“Lady Reason,” a central figure in the medieval French poem Le Roman de La Rose, is a sturdy philosophical archetype with clear precedents in Boethius’ “Lady Philosophy” and ancient Greek and Latin depictions of “Wisdom” as a noble female entity.  In the opera “The Romance of the Rose,” she spends the entire night trying to talk people out of the folly of passionate love...and then succumbs to it herself.  The “Lady Reason Suite” traces this funny and poignant journey from priestess of rationality to pining lover with haughty recitatives, racy torch songs, and elaborate formes fixes, using the only kinds of music Lady Reason will tolerate: precise, keyboard-controlled vocoding; Enlightenment-era tonality; and systematic modernism — until the music, too, is corrupted under the influence of love.
