Overview

CONCEPT AND DIRECTION BY ATOM EGOYAN

From a symphony blooms a love story

In a filmmaker’s hands, a symphony becomes something more. Director Atom Egoyan (perhaps best known for The Sweet Hereafter and remembered by Festival audiences for Feng Yi Ting in 2012) transcends orchestral convention in this multimedia event to create a vivid, impassioned love story from Alexander von Zemlinsky’s Lyric Symphony and Alban Berg’s Lyric Suite. Soprano Natalia Pavlova, adored by Spoleto audiences for her performance in Eugene Onegin last season, returns to sing with baritone Alexander Dobson; together, they animate Bengali writer Tagore’s lush poetry to form a gloriously tender evening. John Kennedy conducts the Spoleto Festival USA Orchestra in these masterpieces on the cusp of late romanticism. Join these esteemed artists to experience a symphonic work like you never have before.

Sung in German with English supertitles.

You Are Mine Own is co-produced by Spoleto Festival USA and Luminato Festival.
