Center for Contemporary Opera presents Anais
Inspired by the life and writings of the noted diarist Anais Nin, this opera is a psychological drama of obsessive love during the last minutes of life. Anais attempts to come to terms with her impending death in the presence of her lover and long-time companion, Rupert Pole. In what amounts to a test of his devotion, she seeks his understanding but also clearly enjoys shocking him as she revisits and reveals some of the strongest memories of her life, her innumerable infidelities, incestuous relations and her violent rejection of motherhood. Rupert is unable to forgive Anais for these dark secrets before she struggles out of bed and then collapses, alone, to the floor.
