“Heggie’s ‘To Hell and Back’ is an incredible musical journey…a bold experiment …the results are magnificent.”
Join the Chamber Orchestra of the Springs and Art Song Colorado in an artistic response against domestic abuse issues exacerbated by COVID quarantines through a free, live performance to benefit TESSA of Colorado Springs.
Jennifer DeDominici and Jonathan Hays present musical theater selections and Amy Maples and Marcia Ragonetti star in a fully staged production of Jake Heggie's one-act opera,"To Hell and Back" - the myth of Persephone in a modern-day spousal abuse setting with a baroque-style orchestra.
Thomas Wilson conducts the Chamber Orchestra with production by Eapen Leubner and Art Song Colorado’s Associate Conductor, Steven Aguiló-Arbues at the piano.
Poetry and artwork submitted by Colorado Springs domestic violence survivors will be on display.
The performance will benefit TESSA of Colorado Springs, empowering victims of partner violence to take back the life that is rightfully theirs.
