Created in collaboration with playwright Christopher Oscar Pena, director Austin Regan, and pianist Patrick Jones, Molly Joyce’s YousaidShesaidHesaid traces the same timeline as Schubert’s song cycle Die Schöne Müllerin but from the experience of the other character in the story, who until now has had no voice – the “girl of the mill” herself.
Baritone Christopher Herbert performs selections from Die Schöne Müllerin.
