EMILY DICKINSON This, and My Heart combines Dickinson's poems and letters with settings by composers Aaron Copland, Tom Cipullo, Lori Laitman and Steve Heitzeg. Tracing the themes she returns to again and again in her work - nature, love, God, death - the listener will experience the songs in the context of Emily Dickinson's personality and times. As the performance unfolds, the readings of her poems and excerpts from her letters "amplify" the songs, giving them added vibrancy and depth. A simple setting and dramatic lighting add richness and context to the theatrical experience.
