A beloved classic meets a world-premiere commission
In this extraordinary musical pairing, Robert Schumann’s beloved Dichterliebe is intertwined with Love in the Time Of..., a brand new song cycle commissioned by BOC. 10 poets and 8 composers have created 16 new songs, each one a reflection or response to the brilliant works in Schumann’s cycle. In a fully staged narrative, this piece explores the love we aspire to and the things we must let go amidst all the promise, turmoil, wonder and heartache of the 21st century.
