Boston Symphony Orchestra: Elgar and Puts
July 20 @ 8:00 pm
The letters of iconic American artist Georgia O’Keeffe and her husband, the photographer and curator Alfred Stieglitz, are full of poetry, humor, passion, pain, and longing. Written over the many months and years they lived apart, these letters chronicle their initial flirtations in 1915—when Georgia was a young, aspiring artist—to Alfred’s death in 1946. Written especially for Renée Fleming and Rod Gilfry, and accompanied by projections by Wendall Harrington, The Brightness of Light is the story of a great artist who ultimately turns from a painful marriage to embrace her work and the desert landscape she loves.
