This past weekend, the Houston Grand Opera gave the US premiere of Mieczyslaw Weinberg’s opera "The Passenger," which will be performed again at this summer’s Lincoln Center Festival. Here’s what the Houston Chronicle had to say about this powerful work:
" ‘The Passenger,’ Mieczyslaw Weinberg’s Holocaust opera, depicts not only the human spirit’s strength in the face of cruelty, but also its weakness when it denies the call of conscience. Weinberg’s long-neglected 1960s opera marshals ingenious storytelling and direct, potent music to bring both sides to life.”
