"Sensational young bass-baritone"
The New Yorker
"In a just world, one in which fame was proportionate to talent, Davóne Tines would be as big as Kanye."
Emma Silvers, KQED

Part of the Run AMOC! Festival

Directed by Zack Winokur
Featuring Davóne Tines and Michael Schachter

Were You There is a musical mediation about moving from darkness to light and finding spiritual communion in an abstract memorial to the past year's victims of police brutality. Bass-baritone Davóne Tines (Crossing, Harvard '09), accompanied by guest pianist Michael Schachter (Harvard '09), performs a set of songs ranging from Spirituals to a new piece composed by Matthew Aucoin (Crossing, Artist-in-Residence at Los Angeles Opera, Harvard '12). Schachter, Tines, and Winokur are currently developing a new music-theater piece with A.R.T. inspired by Langston Hughes' poem, "The Black Clown."

The newly formed American Modern Opera Company, AMOC, won't ever be a typical opera company. No home. No subscribers. No overhead. Just artists. Artists looking for a way to capture their own voice, and do it authentically, with adequate preparation, and—perhaps most importantly—in collaboration, with a fluid notion of art forms and their intersection.
