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.

Claire Chenette visited WUOT to talk about a concert this Sunday to benefit musicians from the Knoxville Symphony during their furlough.

Marble City Opera and Executive/Artistic Director, Kathryn Frady, have been working hard to organize and produce a live performance during the time of Covid-19. The opera company will present Leoncavallo's one-act opera, I Pagliacci, at the Tennessee Amphitheater at World's Fair Park, August 13, 14, and 15. All performances are at 7:30pm, but seating will begin one hour prior to the performance to encourage less crowding and more social distancing. Seating is general admission to keep patrons from having to walk in front of one another in order to get to one's assigned seat.

In 2012, David Lang composed a work for the vocal quartet, Anonymous 4, all about the subject of love. He took, as his starting point, the many different retellings of the story of Tristan and Isolde and then put them next to stories by the contemporary author, Lydia Davis, which are also about love and honor between two people, but from a modern perspective that we can relate to today.
