Notes & Reviews:
The Juniper Tree is an opera composed by Philip Glass and Robert Moran with a libretto by Arthur Yorinks and is based on a tale collected by the Brothers Grimm. The opera was first produced in 1985 at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge Massachusetts. This very grim (no pun intended) story of death, rebirth and love is accompanied by wonderful music. The work, a collaboration between composers Philip Glass and Robert Moran, is an incredibly lyrical and compelling score. This recording features performances by principal singers Jayne West, Sanford Sylvan, Valerie Walters and Lynn Torgove.Notes & Reviews:
