92Y - Opening NIght! Enoch Arden-Patrick Stewart and Emanuel Ax
"To open the Poetry Center’s 75th-anniversary season, Sir Patrick Stewart—whose roles have ranged from Macbeth and Estragon to Xavier and Picard—joins Grammy Award winner and world-renowned pianist Emanuel Ax to perform Richard Strauss’s melodramatic rendering of Tennyson’s epic poem.
Enoch Arden is the tale of a young Scottish sailor who leaves his family to make his fortune on the treacherous seas of the East. After ten years of passions and adventures, Arden returns to a home that is very different from what he left behind.
This is the New York premiere by these two brilliant artists of this extraordinary work, which so evocatively delves into the relationship between poetry and music. Emanuel Ax will also perform Beethoven’s “Pathétique” Sonata in C minor, one his most dramatic early works and heralded for its heroic tonality—a perfect complement to Enoch Arden."
