Rhymes With Opera Presents
“The Impossible She: On Loneliness and Solitude”

May 10, 11, 17, 18, 8:00pm

This new chamber opera focuses on the life of Eleanor Roosevelt, juxtaposing aspects of the first lady’s relationship with Lorena Hickok with her political persona as experienced by a fictitious radio-listener.

In addition to this one-act opera, Rhymes With Opera will also present the world premiere of Colin Read’s On Loneliness and Solitude. Both Read’s and Davis’s works were commissioned by Rhymes With Opera.

“The Impossible She” is part of the fourth annual New York Opera Fest, in which over 30 companies present more than 35 events throughout NYC in May and June. Find out more.
