Reclusive and misunderstood during her lifetime, Emily Dickinson’s innovative, enigmatic verses have resonated with new generations of artists for over a century. Actress Alison Looman and an illustrious company of musicians, including ascendant soprano Katherine Whyte, acclaimed violinist Elmira Darvarova, and members of the Metropolitan Opera and New York Philharmonic Orchestras, present a chamber recital of works inspired by the life and poems of Emily Dickson. Experience Aaron Copland’s Twelve Poems of Emily Dickinson, Mary Howe’s rarely performed string quartet Three Pieces After Emily Dickinson, and a concert-style adaptation of Robert Herridge’s celebrated (and long lost) 1955 television production, Emily Dickson: Portrait of a Poet, directed by John Sorensen.
