Marble City Opera Presents A Staged Performance Of Schubert's "Winterreise"

Oct 30, 2020

A wanderer's solitary journey through the woods in search of something...but what? That is the story of Franz Schubert's dramatic song cycle Die Winterreise. It's the iconic tale of a broken heart that we all can relate to, but the search for healing, greater awareness, and a new path in life after experiencing a loss is something that extends beyond heartache.

Normally performed as a concert work, Marble City Opera is presenting a staged version with video projections to help tell the story and immerse the listener in the wanderer's journey. Performances are November 6th and 7th at 7:30pm and will be given in Trentham Hall at First Baptist Church in downtown Knoxville. Socially-distanced seating is limited to 75 patrons and masks will be required. An online viewing option is also available.

The creative team is: tenor, Blayne Ziegenfuss, pianist, Grace McMullen, and stage director and video designer, Kathryn Frady. Tickets and information are available online at
