Join Zaccho Dance Theatre for the world premiere of A Poet's Love, a new work by choreographer Joanna Haigood and Brooklyn-based tenor/actor José Joaquin Garcia. A Poet's Love is a new creation based on the Dichterliebe song cycle by classical German composer Robert Schumann, set to the poetry of Heinrich Heine. A Poet's Love takes the form of sixteen discrete vignettes, each one responsive to and deeply immersed in the musical and poetic context of a song in Dichterliebe.
