Abraham in Flames Opera Libretto Event PastTuesday, Sept 29, 2015 ,
Abraham in Flames:
Librettist and award-winning translator Niloufar Talebi presents a multimedia libretto event of Abraham in Flames, a chamber opera inspired by the iconic Iranian poet, Ahmad Shamlou (1925-2000), on the 15th anniversary year of his passing. Nominated for the Nobel prize, Shamlou lived a life of unflinching courage against a backdrop of dramatic historical events and changed the course of Iranian poetics. Talebi's original libretto of Abraham in Flames is inspired by Shamlou's life, poetry, controversial speeches, and prison and love letters. This opera is the third installment in Talebi's "Persian Opera Cycle,” the first two of which have premiered at the Kennedy Center and in NYC.
Developed in collaboration with the San Francisco International Arts Festival and the Translation Project
