Spring Concert “The Parting” by Music of Remembrance
May 19, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$55
The Parting, a daring new opera by composer Tom Cipullo and librettist David Mason, explores the life and art of Mikós Radnóti, widely considered one of the most important poetic witnesses to the Holocaust. The work is a profound meditation on what it is about art that outlives us, and that can enable one to create even in the face of unimaginable adversity. With baritone Michael Mayes, mezzo soprano Catherine Cook, and soprano Laura Strickling. Plus: little-known chamber works by three Hungarian composers – Lázló
Weiner, Sándor Vándor and Sándor Kuti – who like Radnóti erished at Nazi hands. MOR’s instrumental ensemble is drawn from the Seattle Symphony.
Pre-Concert Meet-the-Composer: 6:45 p.m.
