Darkling
Composer:Stefan Weisman
Librettist:Anna Rabinowitz
Synopsis
Darkling is a work that speaks for those who did not survive the Holocaust. It assembles narratives of the Holocaust not through the convention of narrative details but through the turbulence of multiple voices in the act of finding themselves. The production recasts opera in a contemporary form by overlaying poetry with live music, interweaving the drama with a landscape of projected films and images, collages of spoken text and pre-recorded soundscapes.

Darkling’s modern, minimalist music and poetic libretto is ideal for groups interested in working on scenes that allow for unique staging and highly expressionistic direction. Actors/readers may be used for the spoken poetry sections and to add characters to each scene.
