After Life

In 2015 we introduced Tom Cipullo’s award-winning opera After Life, imagining a confrontation between the ghosts of Gertrude Stein and Pablo Picasso over the responsibility of artists in a troubled world, and indeed about the meaning of art itself. Ten years later we bring it back in a new production that opens with a musical soirée in the home of Stein and Alice B. Toklas, with selections by composers they might have hosted at one of their legendary gatherings at 27 rue de Fleurus on Paris’s Left Bank.
