Created and directed by IN Series Artistic Director Timothy Nelson, Chronicle of a Life and Love weaves together songs from Robert Schumann’s Frauenliebe und Leben with Shalom Auslander’s essay “Chronicle of a Death Foretold.”

With the struggles of 2020 giving way to a more hopeful future, Chronicle of a Life and Love reflects on finding the value of life in the midst of death; Schumann’s seminal song cycle gives voice to a lifetime of love and loss, while Auslander’s droll, unflinching essay about the loss of his young neighbor, his Baba, and his Zaida, examines the ever-changing terrain of grief.

Initially conceived and created as a film, IN Series presents Chronicle of a Life and Love as a live performance, featuring mezzo-soprano Elizabeth Mondragon, actor Noah Mitchel, and pianist Robert Ainsley.
