Iceboaters are a cultured lot, so if a book and opera entitled ICE comes out how can we resist? Even better that it comes from Finland.
ICE by Ulla-Lena Lundberg: A Three-Part Series – Finlandia Foundation National
The book is based on the life of the author as a young girl, moving in the fifties to an out island in the Finnish archipelago with her family. Ice plays a major part in the story, as it does with our own stories for many months of the year. And the drama we endure is no less than that of the most compelling opera.
This is a three part presentation. The first is an interview with the author, then a discussion with the composer, and lastly the opera itself.
Perhaps the Fat Lady will not only sing us out of the season, but this year in as well. Enjoy!
