Editorial Reviews


...plays fast and loose with the classical canon in creative ways. Jason Cady's Post Madonna Prima Donna is a fascinating mix of operatic vocalism, spoken word, sensual melodies and playful rhythms. --Time Out, NY

Issued on Jessica Pavone s Peacock imprint, Jason Cady's one-act opera Post-Madonna Prima Donna is Mauricio Kagel meets Jerry Springer The Opera. To what extent Cady's piece is intended as a commentary on the former Mrs. Ritchie is kept, perhaps deliberately vague. But a glitzy surface that turns in on itself, as the lone singer (Deanna Neil) starts to sing about the technicalities of the music she's singing musical material becoming more important than the Material Girl tells its own story. And a pattern emerges: Plastic Flowers is a song cycle obsessed with artificiality, while Odi Et Amo is a reinvention of the Baroque cantata. Thoughtful satire, sharp composition. --The Wire

I won't call it a masterpiece, it isn't one. But it damn sure is masterful. And it reminds me subliminally of the works of Virgil Thomson & Gertrude Stein. This is original, inspired, and very well done. But the masses of asses just didn't quite get it. It's not the artist's fault. The masses are really quite dumb.
