Sorry!

No performances are currently available.

It is beyond all hope, against all chance,
That he who left you ten long years ago
Should still be living; well then—let me speak


—Alfred, Lord Tennyson

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.

 

Arrive early and experience Love the Words—A 75th-Anniversary Exhibition of rare photos and correspondence opening on September 25 in our Art Gallery.
