Dogs of Desire Present World Premiere of GLAM GUIGNOL at Albany Symphony Tonight

The Dogs of Desire, Albany Symphony Orchestra's groundbreaking chamber ensemble, will present the world premiere of composer David Mallamud's new work, "Glam Guignonl," with libretto by Rochelle Bright ("Donny Vomit") and Michael Cooper ("Lizardman").

A unique, outrageously inventive, one of a kind musical-theatrical experience, the ensemble performs all-new music from some of America's most creative up-and-coming living composers. This year's Dogs of Desire program features four world premiers specifically written for the ensemble, and welcomes the return of three Dogs of Desires favorites.

From burlesque to motorcycles, from ghost stories to karaoke, the evening is certain to be an unforgettable multimedia extravaganza.

David Mallamud (composer)'s music was recently heard Off-Broadway in the parody Twilight: The Musical (New World Stages, directed by Gabriel Barre) and in Bill Nelson's All-Male Review (Barrington Stages, directed by William Finn). He is currently working with playwright Philip Dawkins on an adaptation of the Dr. Seuss book The Sneetches for The Children's Theatre Company in Minneapolis. He is also a prolific composer of concert music whose work has been performed by a variety of ensembles including The Harrisburg Symphony, The Albany Symphony, The New World Symphony, and The Westchester Philharmonic. Education: B.M. Eastman, M.M. Juilliard, M.F.A. Tisch.

Rochelle Bright (Librettist) is a kiwi writer based in Auckland. After graduating with a Masters from Tisch (New York University), Rochelle returned to NZ to establish Bullet Heart Club with Kitan Petkovski. Highlights: Petrol Head (film in development with Cooper's Town Productions & Libertine Pictures), Daffodils (Cabaret touring 2015), On the Origin (Opera Libretto, with American Lyric Theatre), Stark Night (Cabaret, for Auckland International Arts Festival), @EM Girl (songs for NZ Fashion Week catwalk), Generator (Play for Young & Hungry), A Long Walk in the Rain (Radio play for RNZ), as well as various cabaret works performed across NYC & LA.
