World Premiere
Part of Festival O18
Music by Lembit Beecher
Libretto by Hannah Moscovitch
American Repertoire Program
Performed in English with English supertitles

Lembit Beecher's music is "hauntingly lovely and deeply personal."—San Francisco Chronicle

Frederica von Stade is "one of America's finest artists and singers."—The New York Times

Is there any grace in forgetting? Don’t miss the next new work brought to life at Opera Philadelphia, one of “the most creative and ambitious companies in this country” (The New York Times). This new chamber opera finds fleeting beauty in memory loss through an unflinching yet uplifting exploration of living with Alzheimer’s disease. Frederica von Stade and Marietta Simpson embody this fantastical world premiere from composer Lembit Beecher and librettist Hannah Moscovitch.

Aurora productions in the Perelman Theater are underwritten, in part, by the Wyncote Foundation at the recommendation of Frederick R. Haas, and Mr. Allen D. Black and Mr. Randolph R. Apgar.

Additional production support received by the Allen R. and Judy Brick Freedman Venture Fund for New Opera.

The Composer in Residence Program is made possible by The Andrew W. Mellon foundation
