In our first SummerFest opera, visionary director Doug Fitch helms the west coast première of Marc Neikrug’s chamber opera, A Song by Mahler, which follows a celebrated concert singer as she develops early onset Alzheimer’s and, with the help of her pianist husband, uses music and singing to confront and cope with their new reality. This production features renowned mezzo-soprano Jennifer Johnson-Cano, clarinetist David Shifrin, FLUX Quartet, and one of the world’s leading baritones, Kelly Markgraf.

Co-Commissioned by the Chamber Music Northwest with the support of the CMNW Commissioning Fund, Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, and La Jolla Music Society for SummerFest.
