Opera Quad Cities Returning TODAY!
The event, which begins at 7:00 PM Sunday, January 9 in the Great Hall at Davenport’s Trinity Cathedral, is sponsored by Opera Quad Cities and features Mr. Fahrenkrug and Ms. Apostolidi, members of the Apollo Duo. The duo will present the complete song cycle Die Schöne Müllerin by Franz Schubert.
Composed in 1823, the set of twenty songs is based on the poetry of Wilhelm Müller. The main character is a young wanderer who falls in love with the beautiful daughter of the local miller. Throughout the song cycle, he keeps all his thoughts to himself. There is no interaction between characters other than the conversations that the wanderer has with the brook. Eventually the wanderer realizes the miller’s daughter might be in love with a hunter, and not him. In his despair, the song cycle concludes with a dramatic and tragic final aria.
If you go:
What: Die Schöne Müllerin, performed by the Apollo Duo
When: Sunday, January 9 at 7:00 PM
Where: Great Hall, Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, 121 W. 12th Street, Davenport, Iowa
