Die Nachtigall: A Celebration of Spring will be held on May 28 at 3 p.m. and May 29 at 7 p.m. at Gesa Power House Theatre.
From German, “Die Nachtigall” translates as “The Nightingale” and is the title of a song within a larger song cycle, “Sieben frühe Lieder,” composed by Alban Berg in 1907. “It is because the nightingale has sung throughout the night,” the lyrics share, “that from the sweet sound of her echoing song the roses have sprung up.”
Many composers have set texts along this theme and we will visit them, noting each difference and similarity along the way. Both German and English texts will be celebrated, so dust off your literary translations and join the Walla Walla Choral Society as we celebrate spring!
