Music of Remembrance presents world premiere of new opera The Parting

MUSIC OF REMEMBRANCE
THE PARTING
BENAROYA HALL
ILLSLEY BALL NORDSTROM
RECITAL HALL
May 19 @ 7:30pm


The Parting, a daring new opera by composer Tom Cipullo and librettist David Mason, explores the life and art of Miklós Radnóti, widely considered one of the most important poetic witnesses to the Holocaust. The work is a profound meditation on what it is about art that outlives us, and that can enable one to create even in the face of unimaginable adversity. Plus: little-known chamber works by three Hungarian composers - Lászlo Weiner, Sándor Vándor and Sándor Kuti - who like Radnóti perished at Nazi hands. MOR's instrumental ensemble is drawn from the Seattle Symphony. Starring mezzo soprano Catherine Cook, baritone Michael Mayes, and soprano Laura Stricking, directed by Erich Parce and conducted by Alastair Willis.

Come early for a pre-concert talk with composer Tom Cipullo at 6:45pm.

Tickets: $55 are available in advance at https://www.seattlesymphony.org/concerttickets/calendar/2018-2019/benaroyahall/mor-the-parting or by phone at (206) 215-4747 or (866) 833-4747.

Music of Remembrance fills a unique role throughout the world by remembering the Holocaust through music. With concert performances, educational programs, recordings, and commissions of new works by some of today's leading composers, MOR honors those of all backgrounds who found the strength to create even in the face of suffering, and those who had the courage to speak out against cruelty. We tell stories that communicate urgent lessons for today, and we look beyond the Holocaust itself to the experience of others who have been excluded or persecuted for their faith, ethnicity, gender or sexuality.
