Lembit presents a scene from his recently premiered work I Have No Stories To Tell Youwith libretto by Hannah Moscovitch, and “Sunny View,” a scene from his yet-untitled opera focusing on the experiences of a man with Alzheimer’s disease, with a libretto by Anisa George. Each scene will be presented twice, with different directors, cast and staging. The directors are Daniel Fish and Stephanie Havey.
