CCO presents "Enemies, a Love Story"
"Enemies, a Love Story" opens CCO's exciting spring season. Music by Ben Moore, Libretto by Nahma Sandrow. Based on the novel by Isaac Bashevis Singer
Set in NYC in 1948, the opera follows Holocaust survivor Herman Broder. He spent the war in a hayloft, hidden by Polish peasant Yadwiga, whom he later married. Here in New York, though, he's also in love with a fascinating mistress, herself a survivor. And then his first wife, believed dead, reappears. Lying and daydreaming, in perpetual desperation, Herman juggles these three secret lives, plus a secret job - as long as he can. Will he be caught at last, perhaps by the ordinary human need for happiness?
Featuring an all-star cast with stage direction by Kira Simring and music direction by Michael Pilafian.
