The Thirteenth Child, by Poul Ruders
Fairytale Operas: The Grimm Reality
Somewhere in memory, somewhere between the mythology of the ancient world and our current fascination with super-heroes, vampires, and wizards, the supernatural glow of childhood fairytales illumines our collective consciousness. We’ll explore the world premiere of Poul Ruders’ The Thirteenth Child as we get to know the composer and his music, and look at aspects of other fairytale operas.
Sunday June 9th, 2:00 PM – Albuquerque, Las Puertas Event Center
