Circulo Trio - The Triumph of Time @ PianoForte Studios

The Triumph of Time is a new Shakespeare adaption for violin, clarinet, piano and one actor.

Here is a clip from one of their previous performances:

Founded in 2015 at Michigan State University, Círculo Trio has presented concerts in Michigan, New York, Maryland, Illinois, Canada, and Thailand, specializing in 20th/21st-century repertoire. Eager to explore the possibilities provided by the unique combination of the violin, clarinet, and piano, the trio takes a balanced approach to programming, showcasing newer and/or rarely performed pieces alongside standard repertoire. In July 2016, the trio made its international appearance as guest artist in the 12th Thailand International Composition Festival, where they performed at the festival’s composition competition for a distinguished jury that included prominent American composers John Corigliano, Mark Adamo, and Aaron Jay Kernis. Círculo Trio was awarded 2nd prize in the ensemble category of the 2016 Salut International Performing Arts Competition.
Passionate about making the classical music concert a more engaging experience, the trio has commissioned The Triumph of Time, a new musical-dramatic rendition of Shakespeare’s play The Winter’s Tale for violin, clarinet, piano and one actor with a libretto by Sandra Logan and original music by Ruth Chan.

Actor Tommy Gomez has worked extensively as a regional theatre actor for the past twenty-five years with an emphasis in the classics. Some theatres where he has performed include: nine consecutive seasons with the American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) where he worked with the likes of Diane Venora, Kathleen Widdoes, Tom Waits, Robert Wilson, William S. Burroughs, and Peter Riegert. A.C.T. world premieres include Richard Nelson’s adaptation of Luigi Pirandello’s Enrico IV and Michael Feingold’s adaptation of Friedrick Schiller’s Mary Stuart which was later remounted and taken to Boston’s Huntington Theatre
He was part of four seasons with Shakespeare Santa Cruz, and four seasons equaling sixteen Shakespeare productions with the California Shakespeare Festival, touring two of these productions along the west coast.
Other regional theatre credits include: The Old Globe Theatre playing opposite Dana Delany and Billy Campbell in a production of Much Ado About Nothing directed by Collective member Brendon Fox, Berkeley Repertory Theatre, TheatreWorks L.A. in a national tour with Eric Stoltz, Theatre Works (Palo Alto), Wisconsin Shakespeare Festival, Georgia Shakespeare Festival, Marin Theatre Company, San Francisco Shakespeare Festival, The Aurora Theatre Company, The Purple Rose Theatre Company and Lansing’s own BoarsHead Theatre.
