Michael Hersch’s “On the Threshold of Winter”

January 18, 2018 - January 20, 2018

Joined by guest soprano Ah Young Hong, Ensemble Dal Niente performs Michael Hersch’s harrowing monodrama, “On the Threshold of Winter.”

21CM Takeaway: Based on the devastating final poems of Martin Sorescu as the poet grappled with liver cancer, Hersch’s opera offers an important, if difficult, glimpse into the human psyche and its relationship with pain.
