Levy Hall at Rodef Shalom | Pittsburgh (Shadyside), PA
Resonance Works | Pittsburgh open their fifth season with two epic song cycles by romantic & modern masters that explore the heart of an artist.

Kara Cornell will perform Jake Heggie & Gene Scheer's Camille Claudel: Into the fire, which depicts the passion, artistry and madness in the French Sculptor's life. Written for mezzo Joyce DiDonato, the work "compresses a tragic life of operatic dimensions into a song cycle of great beauty and emotional resonance" (NY Times)

Hailed by The New York Times as “a visually and aurally ravishing chamber opera…a captivating multimedia spectacle,” Song from the Uproar is a one woman opera that immerses the audience in the surreal landscapes of real-life Swiss adventurer Isabelle Eberhardt's life: the loss of her family, the thrill of her arrival in Africa and the mystery of her demise.
