Description

Superstar soprano, Renée Fleming, returns to the Colorado Symphony for an exciting Colorado premiere of The Brightness of Light conducted by Music Director, Brett Mitchell.

The letters of iconic American artist Georgia O’Keeffe and her husband, the photographer and curator Alfred Stieglitz, are full of poetry, humor, passion, pain, and longing. Written over the many months and years they lived apart, these letters chronicle their initial flirtations—when Georgia was a young, aspiring artist—to Alfred’s death in 1946. Written in three parts, with orchestral interludes composed by Kevin Puts and accompanied by a film by Wendall Harrington, The Brightness of Light tells the story of a great artist who ultimately turns from a painful marriage to embrace her work and the desert land she loves.

Note: This performance includes visual accompaniment with three large screens suspended in the concert hall. Limited seating.
