Seasons in Hell — A Life of Rimbaud
Composer: Harold Blumenfeld
Librettist: Charles Kondek
Premiere Date: February 08, 1996
Producing Company: University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music
Description: The opera, drawn from the life, poetry, and correspondence of Arthur Rimbaud, is centered on the teenage poet's renunciation of literature in favor of action and adventure. In cinematic flow, it juxtaposes the life of the turbulent young poet with his subsequent career of fortune-seeking and gun-running in Africa. Including erotic and exotic scenes, episodes of violence and debauchery, and delirium and enchantment, the work confronts the ambivalence and grandeur of its subject without compromise. The piece ends as it began, with the death of Rimbaud.
