Robert Wood, conductor

Master composer Tom Cipullo returns to UrbanArias with two offerings in a searing double bill. Part one is JOSEPHINE, a World Premiere, which offers a glimpse of the divine and complicated Josephine Baker in Paris during the 1930s. AFTER LIFE examines the question, “what responsibility does a famous artist have in times of great turmoil?” The opera imagines Gertrude Stein and Pablo Picasso, both dead, arguing with each other in the afterlife about their actions during World War II; they are confronted by a young girl who once sold Stein a rose on a country road in France, and who was later sent to a concentration camp where she died. “Why,” she asks, “did you survive and I did not?”
