With Blood, With Ink by Daniel Crozier

Sunday, July 25, 2010

Daniel Crozier's With Blood, With Ink recounts the story of Sor Juana de la Cruz, a 17th Century Mexican nun who was an intellectual, poet and champion of women's rights. The Inquisition forced her to sign a blood oath renouncing her life's work. Mr. Crozier's production depicts Sor Juana on her deathbed, confronting a visage of her younger self. The cast includes soprano Michelle Areyzaga, soprano Kerri Marcinko, soprano Jennifer Tiller, mezzo-soprano Krysty Swann, tenor Andrew Drost, bass-baritone Stephen Bryant and soprano Amelia Watkins. The librettist is Peter M. Krask.
