The Parting
Its May 19, 1944  the final evening at home for the great Hungarian poet Miklós Radnóti and his beautiful, devoted wife Fanni.  Foreseeing his likely fate in a forced labor camp, Radnóti wonders as we often do why we are given life: To learn what love is. To live. To make beautiful things. To die. Facing these stark illuminations brings a bright awareness of being.

The Parting is a profound and musically rich meditation on what it means to be an artist but also desire ordinary happiness.  It comes from the same brilliant creative team that brought us the award-winning After Life, with its dramatic confrontation between the ghosts of Gertrude Stein and Pablo Picasso.

Starring: baritone Michael Mayes; mezzo soprano Catherine Cook; and soprano Laura Strickling. Director Erich Parce

Plus chamber works by three Hungarian composers who perished under Nazi hands:

Laszlo Weiner, Duo for violin and viola

Sandor Vandor, Air

Sandor Kuti: Serenade for String Trio

6:45 p.m. Pre-Concert Interview: Kip Cranna, Dramaturg of the San Francisco Opera, leads a conversation with composer Tom Cipullo and Stage Director Erich Parce.
