Requiem for Anna Politkovskaya
Friday, May 18, 2018

A unique puppet oratorio commemorating the dissident Russian journalist, Anna Politkovskaya, who was assassinated by the Russian government in 2006.  Created by Russian composer Alexander Bakshi and Hudson Valley puppeteer Amy Trompetter (whose Fantasque premiered at Bard SummerScape 2016), Requiem for Anna Politkovskaya is a timely and moving tribute to Politkovskaya's bravery in the face of state control, her exposé of political folly, and her lament for the suffering of women and children in the war in Chechnya, transfigured by Trompetter’s astonishing and spectacular puppet pageantry. Featuring musicians and singers from the Bard College Conservatory of Music and undergraduate performers. 

Time: 7:30 pm
Sponsor: Bard Theater and Performance Program
