About This Performance

This concert is supported in part by Grant Greapentrog

Sarah Shafer, soprano; Jazimina MacNeil, mezzo; Jonathan Ware, piano; Odds Bodkin, narrator; with Brett Ashley Robinson as Danika

Using the lyrics of Dvořák’s sublime Moravian duets as inspiration, the inimitable storyteller Odds Bodkin has crafted an original fairytale, Danika the Rose, which is woven throughout the musical performance of Dvořák’s duets. An unshakable kinship with the natural world, a courageous heroine, and love triumphant unite in a melding of story and song for our tumultuous time.
