IN A GROVE | Pittsburgh Opera

 —  —

George R. White Opera Studio, Pittsburgh Opera Headquarters, 2425 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15222

A silent, expectant grove. A violent encounter between a man, a woman, and a notorious brigand.

Seven testimonies, each proposing a different perspective on the crime. Akutagawa’s classic short story “In a Grove,” which inspired the plot of Kurosawa’s renowned film Rashomon, offers a searing investigation into the impossibility and elusiveness of truth.

Music by Christopher Cerrone, libretto by Stephanie Fleischmann, based on the short story by Ryūnosuke Akutagawa. Antony Walker conducts; Mary Birnbaum directs.

Six performances: February 19, 22, 25, 27, March 1 & 3, 2022

$25-$50
