Meet the Creators - Ashes & Snow

Saturday, February 17, 2018 to Saturday, February 17, 2018
7:00 - 7:30 PM

Location: Pittsburgh Opera Headquarters

Meet composer, Douglas J. Cuomo and stage director, Jonathan Moore before the opening performance of Ashes & Snow. Hear their inspiration and explanation for this opera during a special pre-opera talk.

Ashes & Snow is based on Wilhelm Müller’s 24 poem cycle used as the text for Franz Schubert’s famous Winterreise (“Winter Journey”). The 24 poems and songs of the Winterreise tell an anguished story of lost love, through what is essentially a single dramatic monologue, sung by Pittsburgh Opera Resident Artist tenor Eric Ferring.

Free to all Saturday ticketholders, no reservations necessary.
