I Wish It So: Marc Blitzstein – The Man In His Music
Friday, October 23, 2020
University Opera presents its first project of 2020-21 in video format as it turns to the music of Marc Blitzstein. I Wish It So: Marc Blitzstein – The Man In His Music is a unique production put together by Director of University Opera David Ronis. A biographical pastiche, it tells the story of Blitzstein’s life by recontextualizing 23 songs and ensembles from his shows, juxtaposing them with spoken excerpts from his working notes and letters, and tying it all together with a narration.
