Poems After Lorca, inspired by Federico Garcia Lorca, is a new song cycle by Donen, performed by Ernesto Tomasini, a legendary singer with a 4 octave range, awarded His Excellency in Italy for his work in theatre and experimental music.
Also on the bill: the world premiere of Spengler's Homage à Mallarmé, sung by French soprano Lore Lixenberg, and works by Catoire and Roslaves performed by Zassimova.
