American Premiere: The Passenger at HGO
Seeded by houstongrandopera on 20 Jan 2014
Author: hgopera As Faulkner wrote, "The past isn't dead. It isn't even past." En route to Brazil with her husband, a german diplomat, Liese is unnerved by the sight of a woman - another passenger - who eerily resembles Marta, one of teh inmates Liese tormented when she was an SS guard at Auschwitz. The action takes us from the gentility of a luxury liner's deck to the squalor of a death camp where cruelty, despair, and unspeakable courage are evident in equal measure. This American premiere will be one of the most important musical events of the year.
Presenter: Houston Grand Opera
