Barber’s opera tells the story of two women who yearn for a love that is immortal. One is in denial; the other accepts her fate. One of the great American operas, it is noted for its great beauty—moments of disquieting intimacy alternate with ferocious lyrical passion. Noted soprano Marie Plette
sings the title role in this semi-staged concert performance conducted by Jonathan Khuner
. Also featured are Malin Fritz, Nikola Printz, Jonathan Boyd and Philip Skinner.
