Nietzsche: My Heart, My Serpent: Thus Spoke Zarathustra

The psychological and spiritual journey of Nietzsche and his alter-ego Zarathustra are portrayed in this dramatic Liederabend. The compelling language of Nietzsche’s masterpiece, along with excerpts from his letters, portray a man in search of his true self as he struggles to free himself from the grip of madness.

Lieder for baritone and piano, along with the enchanting sounds of a children’s chorus and French horn, create a musical tapestry that includes Brahms’s Four Serious Songs, Wolf’s Prometheus, and Liszt’s dramatic recitation The Sad Monk.
