Penelope” Watch on YouTube

Featuring Symphony New Hampshire 

Conducted by Roger Kalia 

A woman’s husband appears at her door after an absence of twenty years, suffering from brain damage.  A veteran of an unnamed war, he doesn’t know who he is, and she doesn’t know who he’s become.  His wife tries to restore him and their bond by reading The Odyssey to him.  Penelope is a meditation on memory, identity, and what it means to come home.  It’s ultimately a story about relationships, compassion, and healing.    

Sarah Kirkland Snider’s Penelope is a 60-minute song cycle in 14 movements.
