Winterreise

A Winter’s journey.

Fresh off of his debut at the Metropolitan Opera, baritone and visual artist David Adam Moore performs Schubert’s stunning song cycle, based on 24 poems by Wilhelm Müller, with Portland Opera Assistant Conductor Nicholas Fox on piano. The heartache of this brilliant composition is illuminated by an evocative landscape of 3D projection mapping, designed by the NYC-based multimedia art collective GLMMR.

Plot & Program Notes

Production by: GLMMR

An unnamed poet has his heart broken.

Distraught, he leaves town on an existential trek across heavy snows and frozen creeks of a German winter. Winterreise translated into English means Winter Journey. At nearly every turn, the poet experiences nostalgia for the lover who chose another.

When he passes a leafless linden tree, he remembers carving her name in its bark. When he cries, he imagines his tears melting the snow. And though he could turn back at any moment, the wandering poet is determined to see his strange journey through to its bitter end.
