Presented by American Symphony Orchestra

Performance Thursday, March 1, 2018 | 8 PM

American Symphony Orchestra


Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
In post-Fascist Italy, Luigi Nono attempted to reverse the darkness of Mussolini and rescue art from being the handmaiden of the state. His one-act opera Intolleranza speaks out against dictatorship. It follows a migrant worker travelling home as he gets caught up in a political protest, is tortured in prison, and escapes to fight for a world without war.
