A mysterious suitcase filled with stolen masterpieces lands in Mona’s hands, among them a Lucian Freud portrait of a woman with her eyes closed. As the painting stirs up long-buried memories and emotions, Mona grapples with whether to save her son—the thief—or the priceless paintings.
Inspired by a real-life art heist, this world premiere from award-winning composer Jennifer Higdon (Cold Mountain), starring contralto Meredith Arwady, delves into cycles of family trauma and the value of art.
