Concert: Heggie/Scheer Double Bill
Based on a true story about an ailing Vietnam war veteran who learns decades later he is the heir to a priceless art collection stolen by the Nazis. His arduous voyage to Prague in search of this legacy leads him to embrace an identity that had been hidden from him, and through art he discovers a deeper truth in his life. The evening will also feature Heggie and Scheer’s Another Sunrise, an earlier MOR commission. This intense monodrama is an intimate portrait of an Auschwitz survivor’s struggle to find words capable of describing harrowing, unimaginable situations to people who weren’t there. Together, the two operas are profound tributes to the restorative power of memory.
