L'enfant Prodigue @ The Eutopia Conference
Saturday September 10, 2016 | 3 PM | Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden
1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301
From Bare Opera's 2015 production of Debussy's L'enfant Prodigue, comes this adapted revival in collaboration with Floating Opera. The short opera performed with piano chronicles the return of the "Prodigal Son." After much distance and pain, Lia's son Azael returns to her and Simeon. This rarely performed work touches on themes of forgiveness, unwavering love and faith all set to rich lyrical harmonies indicative of Debussy's later work. The conference is free with RSVP.
