Sky on Swings
Composer: Lembit Beecher

Librettist: Hannah Moscovitch
Synopsis
Is there any grace in forgetting? Can time’s cruel and random destruction of memory also produce fleeting moments of happiness and love, unencumbered by the past and stripped of the self? Frederica von Stade and Marietta Simpson embody this fantastical world premiere from composer Lembit Beecher and librettist Hannah Moscovitch.
