Come join the Pittsburgh Opera for the world premiere of Ashes & Snow, directed by Jonathan Moore and composed by Douglas Cuomo. The show is based on a 24-poem cycle used by Franz Schubert in his famous piece “Winterreise,” and will be performed in English with texts projected above the stage. This is Pittsburgh Opera’s second world premiere in the last two years. The work will be sung by Eric Ferring [pictured], who was hailed as one of Pittsburgh’s “Who’s Next in Music” by The Incline. The show is infused with punk energy and acid jazz, creating a new sound to illicit an emotional experience uncommon to opera. Continues through Feb. 25. -Lauren Ortega
