Jonathan Berger: Leonardo
Apr 6, 2019
As the world celebrates the genius of Leonardo da Vinci at 500, Jonathan Berger brings the premiere of his new chamber opera—a modern masterwork that invites us into the mind, observations, and boundless curiosity of one of the greatest creative thinkers of all time.
Featuring acclaimed baritone Tyler Duncan (Metropolitan Opera), a libretto drawn entirely from da Vinci’s own notebooks, and stunning designs by Gabriel Calatrava, this compelling work invites us to enter da Vinci’s world—one in which we never stop questioning, examining, renewing our intellect, and seeking truths. Have you been neglecting to marvel at the world around you? Experience Leonardo.
