Disturbing the Peace: art song to comfort and disturb
The purpose of art is to disturb the comfortable, and to comfort the disturbed.
The unfamiliar, sometimes very loud operatic voice itself can be disturbing for some; for others, a source of comfort. Art song, poetry and opera express the extremes of human emotion and experience.
Join us as we dig beneath the polite veneer of poetry and art song to the messy, disturbing passions that drove the creators of these works.
Repertoire from 19th, 20th & 21st centuries.
