Letters from the Affair

"Letters from the Affair" is a multi-media musical; there's a little jazz, a little opera, some cantorial singing, and even a little art history. The work is based upon a series of letters written by the Impressionist painters Camille Pissarro and Edgar Degas. These letters are framed to tell a little-known story from the end of the 19th century about the relationship between these two founding members of the French Impressionist Art movement. The story centers on their friendship as artists and how it deteriorated and then completely ended because of their differing views regarding the Dreyfus affair.
