Minnesota Opera Center
Noted film expert Bruce Crawford will discuss Bernard Herrmann's life and career, from CBS Radio to Carnegie Hall to Hollywood, and his lasting impact on our culture. Wuthering Heights was considered by Herrmann himself as the masterwork of his life. He was intensely protective of the piece, which took him several years to complete. Hermann did not allow any cuts or revisions, which kept the opera from being performed until after his death. Herrmann's music, in whatever form, is distinct and memorable and his opera is no exception.
