Three Mimes

Three Mimes, a theatre piece for flute and baritone voice, was completed by Cantrick in 1969. Its creation flowed from Cantrick's desire to feature his new flute sound, the buzz, as well as other extended flute techniques not commonly utilized in the repertoire at the time. Concert versions of excerpts of this work were first performed by Cantrick himself in 1970, in Buffalo, at Rutgers University, and at Carnegie Recital Hall. The entire work was staged in its premiere performance in 1994 by the American Chamber Opera Company, at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, with Margaret Lancaster, flute, and John Uehlein, baritone.

Below is a description, with specifications and synopsis, which appeared in the February 1997 issue of Opera in America:
