Description: "Guest from the Future" is a chamber opera based on the story of the legendary Russian poet, Anna Akhmatova's, overnight meeting with the British philosopher and diplomat, Isaiah Berlin, in Leningrad in November 1945. The key question—why Akhmatova survived the persecution that imprisoned and claimed the lives of so many of the Russian intelligentsia—is the political foil to the personal story of the strange encounter between the 35-year-old philosopher and the 55-year-old poet.
