Morning Buzz host Jonathan Zarov visits with actors Alexadra Kassouf, who plays Clara Schumann, Melanie Cain, who plays Clara’s mother in the Fresco Opera Theatre stage production Clara. Jeff Turk, the Fresco Opera Board president, joins the discussion.
It’s a two hundred year old secret. Schumann was the love of Clara’s life. Clara was the love of Brahms’. The music was their passion. Letters were burned in an attempt to erase history, but the historian will uncover the truth of this age old love affair.
Fresco Opera Theatre has created an original production celebrating the life of Clara Wieck Schumann. Adapted from Boman Desai’s critically acclaimed novel, TRIO, Fresco Opera will use the music of Robert and Clara Schumann and Johannes Brahms to tell the story of the lives of these three great composers.
