World PremiereMusic by Lembit BeecherLibretto by Hannah MoscovitchAmerican Repertoire ProgramPerformed in English with English supertitles
Part of Festival O18
Is there any grace in forgetting? Can time’s cruel and random destruction of memory also produce fleeting moments of happiness and love, unencumbered by the past and stripped of the self? Frederica von Stade and Marietta Simpson embody this fantastical world premiere from composer Lembit Beecher and librettist Hannah Moscovitch.
