American Modern Recordings is excited to release the world premiere recording of Three Way, a "titillating and clever" (TimeOur New York) trio of one-act operas for eight singers and chamber orchestra, and hailed as "an excellent comic opera that will appeal to audiences well steeped in opera, as well as those who are new to the experience" (Opera News).
With a gorgeous, colorful score by Robert Paterson and a clever, witty, and heartfelt libretto by David Cote, Three Way explores the possible future – and the eternal questions –of love, sex, and need. The Companion is about Maya and her live-in lover Joe, a biomorphic android. Safe Word explores an encounter between a dominatrix and her businessman client that goes places no one expects. Masquerade dramatizes a party at a mansion in which four couples don masks and shed their outer selves.
Featuring the Nashville Opera conducted by Dean Williamson, with Eliza Bonet, Melisa Bonetti, Samuel Levine, Wes Mason, Danielle Pastin, Courtney Ruckman, Jordan Rutter, and Matthew Trevino. Produced by multi-Grammy® winning producer Blanton Alspaugh and recorded at the world-famous Ocean Way Nashville Studios.
