Event Details:

Directed and Performed by Eugene Brancoveanu with Rachel Beninghof, Jin-Hee Lee, J. Raymond Myers, and Phillip Skinner

Musical Director, Marie-Louise Catsalis, Stanford Medicine Orchestra

In a short one-act opera encapsulating the tensions and challenges of humanities and sciences coexisting in a university setting, a Lecturer in English, overwhelmingly infatuated with a Professor of Genetics, both debate the essence and relevance of their disciplines, which becomes a metaphor for their star-crossed relationship, as parodied by a retelling of the Tristan and Isolde love story. Composed by Haris Vrontos with a libretto by John Ioannidis, a Professor of Medicine at Stanford.
