Vanessa
By Samuel Barber

7:30pm, Thu 3rd March 2016 - Sat 5th March 2016, at Robinson College Auditorium
Lent Week 7

The Brickhouse Theatre Company presents Samuel Barber's lush, gothic opera Vanessa. First performed in 1958, this expansive work won Barber the Pulitzer prize, but has since been under-performed. Director Judith Lebiez brings Vanessa to life in its first Cambridge presentation.

In the words of Barber's partner, and librettist, Giancarlo Menotti:

"This is the story of two women, Vanessa and Erika, caught in the central dilemma which faces every human being: whether to fight for one's ideals to the point of shutting oneself off from reality, or compromise with what life has to offer, even lying to oneself for the mere sake of living."
