Continuing our commitment to amplifying the voices of female artists across multiple mediums, this year’s Time’s Arrow festival juxtaposes old and new stories of the biblical figure Susanna. Exploring sensitive themes of our time, the festival includes the fully staged world premiere of the new opera Artemisia and concerts of Handel’s Susanna as Trinity continues its presentation of the composer’s oratorios. Artemisia tells the story of the Baroque artist who portrayed herself as Susanna in her famous painting Susanna and the Elders. The opera was composed by Laura Schwendinger with libretto by Ginger Strand and will be conducted by Lidiya Yankovskaya. Festival soloists will include Lauren Snouffer, John Holiday, Oliver Mercer, Christopher Burchett, and members of The Choir of Trinity Wall Street.
