Enter a world of myth, music, and drama in this fascinating collaboration from composer André Previn and playwright Tom Stoppard. Focusing on one of literature’s great heroines, Penelope retells the story of the woman who stood strong awaiting the return of her wandering husband, Odysseus. Impassioned vocalism and intense drama make this an unforgettable piece, even more so when performed by Renée Fleming, “America’s soprano of choice” (The New York Times), the “always interesting” Emerson String Quartet, and pianist Simone Dinnerstein with the incomparable Uma Thurman as the work’s narrator.
