CIPULLO, T.: After Life / LAITMAN, L.: In Sleep The World Is Yours (Music of Remembrance, Kirov)

Tom Cipullo’s contemporary opera After Life explores the rôle of art in a troubled world and poses weighty questions about the artist’s duty in confronting inhumanity. David Mason’s libretto imagines an encounter between the ghosts of Pablo Picasso and Gertrude Stein, who reveal both their brilliance and their human flaws. Lori Laitman’s song cycle In Sleep The World Is Yours sets three beautiful poems by Selma Meerbaum-Eisinger, who was to perish in a Nazi labor camp in Ukraine at the age of 18.
