Overview

Sky on Swings is part of Opera Philadelphia's Digital Festival O and will be available for streaming on-demand until August 31.

Is there any grace in forgetting? This chamber opera finds fleeting beauty in memory loss through an unflinching yet uplifting exploration of living with Alzheimer’s disease.  Renowned mezzo-sopranos Frederica von Stade and Marietta Simpson embody this fantastical world premiere from composer Lembit Beecher, librettist Hannah Moscovitch, and director Joanna Settle.

This broadcast contains some strong language.

Streaming On-Demand

Digital Festival O is generously funded, in part, by the John S. & James L. Knight Foundation.
