The Lost Chord: May 9 - A Feast of Beast

On Mother’s Day, enjoy two treatments of the nursery story of “Beauty and the Beast.”  Georges Auric supplied an ethereal, haunting score for the Jean Cocteau 1946 classic, “La Belle et la Bête,” one of the most beloved of foreign films.  In 1992, Philadelphia composer Robert Moran wrote “Desert of Roses,” on the same subject, for Houston Grand Opera.  We’ll hear Moran’s “Arias, Interludes and Inventions,” a suite from the larger work, with moving contributions by soprano Jayne West.  It’s a veritable B&B banquet for Mom, this Sunday at 10 pm.
