The Angel’s Share presents the world premiere of David Hertzberg’s The Rose Elf

SYNOPSIS/DESCRIPTION:
The Angel’s Share kicks off with the World Premiere of The Rose Elf, a chamber opera by composer David Hertzberg, directed by the visionary R. B. Schlather and starring award-winning mezzo-soprano Samantha Hankey. Hertzberg just won MCANA’s “Best New Opera Award” for his last work, The Wake World (based on famed occultist Aleister Crowley), and in The Rose Elf he tells the tale of two lovers torn apart by a senseless act of violence; and of a strange and sensuous being, at once near and distant, who witnesses this tragedy and is transformed.

CAST
Samantha Hankey ( mezzo-soprano) — The Elf
Alisa Jordheim (soprano) — The Girl/Luna
Kyle Bielfield (tenor) — The Beloved/Horus
Andrew Bogard (bass-baritone) — The Brother
