REDCAT: “Hauntingly insidious, pulling the listener inexorably into this vampire-like romance.” —The Wall Street Journal 

Presented with LA Opera

Based on Ingmar Bergman’s classic film, Persona is a provocative and artistically complex depiction of human frailty, cruelty and identity. In an isolated summer house, a young nurse becomes caretaker of a stage actress who has suddenly lost the ability to speak. The deepening layers of their unsettling relationship unfold in a taut psychological drama, revealed through a unique aural landscape and a richly layered production. Composed by Keeril Makan. Librettist / Director, Jay Scheib.
