Czernowin: Pnima ... Ins Innere

2005 NR

Israeli composer Chaya Czernowin delivers an unconventional opera told from the perspective of children whose parents survived the Holocaust, a nonnarrative work based on a novel by David Grossmann. Presented without a traditional libretto -- or a customary plot -- the award-winning production consists of two silent actors onstage flanked by vocal and instrumental soloists.
