Enoch Arden: A Melodrama by Richard Strauss

Sep 28, 7:00 p.m.

Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center

Enoch Arden is one of the greatest of all melodramas. Richard Strauss set the eponymous narrative poem by Alfred, Lord Tennyson for narrator and piano. This epic story takes us from young love in an English village to the high seas where Arden is shipwrecked on a tropical island. After countless years, Arden miraculously gets back to his village, where all has changed in his absence. Enoch Arden will be narrated in English.

Free and open to the public.
