Winterreise

SINGING YOUR HEART OUT HAS NEVER BEEN SO LITERAL. OR TERMINAL.

An unnamed poet has his heart broken.

Distraught, he leaves town on an existential trek across heavy snows and frozen creeks of a German winter. Winterreise translated into English means Winter Journey. At nearly every turn, the poet experiences nostalgia for the lover who chose another.

When he passes a leafless linden tree, he remembers carving her name in its bark. When he cries, he imagines his tears melting the snow. And though he could turn back at any moment, the wandering poet is determined to see his strange journey through to its bitter end.

Sung in German with projected English translations.

Plot & Program Notes

Join us at the Gregory K. & Mary Chomenko Hinckley Studio Theatre at The Hampton Opera Center for the 2nd annual Winter Vino e Voce.

Fresh off his debut at the Metropolitain Opera, baritone and visual artist David Adam Moore brings his multimedia production of Schubert’s stunning 24-song cycle for piano and voice to Portland. Using 3D projection mapping, Moore transforms the minimalist setting of a barren winter into a lush, evocative landscape of moving images.
