Gilded: A Song Cycle for Tenor and Strings
September 15 at 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
The song cycle Gildedis inspired by both the wandering lieder of the Romantic era and today’s free-market/ neoliberal sensibility. The cycle explores the intersections between these two ideas–the conflicts between systemic economic forces outside any one person’s control, and the possibility for an individual’s happiness as played out in their most personal and intimate relationships: namely, love.
The piece was written for and will be sung by the sensational tenor Brenden Gunnell, accompanied by the superb Polymnia String Quartet. The text was written by award-winning poet/librettists Megan Levad.Both Megan and Brenden will be flying in for this performance!
