Flutist Vanessa Holroyd, one of the owners at Music Management, is performing in the A.R.T.'s world premier of the opera Crossing, inspired by the diary Walt Whitman kept as a nurse during the Civil War.
The opera by the extraordinary young composer Matthew Aucoin explores how the individual experiences of soldiers are remembered and told. As Whitman listens to wounded veterans share their memories and messages, he forges a bond with a soldier who forces him to examine his own role as writer and poet.
The opera features the Boston-based orchestra A Far Cry, an ensemble at the forefront of a dynamic new generation in classical music.
