Beth Morrison presents Persona

May 5, 2016 at 7:00 pm–8:30 pm

Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum 25 Evans Way Boston, MA 02115 United States

Persona. Music by Keeril Makan. Libretto by Jay Scheib after the film by Ingmar Bergman. Driceted by Jay Scheib and conducted by Evan Ziporyn. Featuring Either/Or Ensemble and starring soprano Amanda Crider with actress Lacey Dorn.

Persona is a provocative, highly cerebral, and artistically complex opera-theatre depiction of human frailty, cruelty, and identity. The libretto has been adapted from Ingmar Bergman’s original screenplay for the 1966 classic film, which has been described as a penetrating, dreamlike work of profound psychological depth dealing with ontological subjectivity and the gaze of cinema itself.
