Works & Process at the Guggenheim presents The Metropolitan Opera: “The Hours” by Kevin Puts

October 31, 2022

Go behind the scenes of Pulitzer Prize–winning composer Kevin Puts’s The Hours, adapted from Michael Cunningham’s acclaimed novel and the Oscar-winning 2002 film. Three of today’s most compelling artists—sopranos Renée Fleming and Kelli O’Hara and mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato—star as a trio of women from different eras who each grapple with their inner demons and their roles in society. Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin will conduct the world-premiere production by Phelim McDermott. In this first look, Met General Manager Peter Gelb moderates a discussion with members of the creative team, and cast members perform highlights from its powerful score.

An independent process-focused non-profit performing arts organization, Works & Process illuminates the artistic process of creators from the world’s largest organizations and simultaneously champions artists representing historically underrecognized performing arts cultures by providing rare longitudinal studio-to-stage fully-funded creative residency, commissioning, and presenting support. Works & Process provides audiences with unprecedented access to creative process with programs that blend artist discussions and performance highlights, with the goal of fostering greater understanding and appreciation and broadening representation. This season Works & Process celebrates New York artists, street and social dance, and after four decades at the Guggenheim expands beyond the museum to also present at Gibney Center, Lincoln Center, and The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, with the Jerome Robbins Dance Division. Our ongoing LaunchPAD “Process as Destination” residency program knits together a constellation of 10 residency centers across New York state to support creative process.

“But praise and gratitude also must go to Works & Process and Jacob’s Pillow. These organizations have not only been providing lifelines to artists during the pandemic, they have also been directing attention and resources to dance communities often neglected by the institutions of concert dance.”
– The New York Times

“An exceptional opportunity to understand something of the creative process” – The New York Times
