Music by Evan Fein; libretto by Evan Fein and Þorvaldur Davíð Kristjánsson (2011). When a ravishing woman with a mysterious past arrives one misty morning, the inhabitants of a small Icelandic town learn that change can be both painful and joyful. Set against a land of austere beauty, this tragic love tale challenges us to examine our motivations carefully and to deal with ourselves honestly.
Featuring John Brancy, baritone; Catherine Hancock, soprano; Kjirsten Johnson, mezzo-soprano; Andy McCullogh, tenor; and Drew Santini, baritone, with pianists Evan Fein and Ryan Jackson.
Co-presented with The American Scandinavian Society of New York.
