Is there any grace in forgetting? This chamber opera finds fleeting beauty in memory loss through an unflinching yet uplifting exploration of living with Alzheimer’s disease. Frederica von Stade and Marietta Simpson embody this fantastical world premiere from composer Lembit Beecher, librettist Hannah Moscovitch, and director Joanna Settle. This filmed performance has been made available as part of Opera Philadelphia's first-ever Digital Festival. Please consider making a donation on Opera Philadelphia's website.
