Sophie's Choice

Four years after its world premiere in London, Peabody faculty member Nicholas Maw's opera Sophie's Choice had its American debut in September with the Washington National Opera. Angelika Kirchschlager, pictured here, sang the title role in a work characterized by Washington Post critic Tim Page as "in all ways a serious venture — in its grandeur, its ambitions, its soaring, searing music and opulent orchestration."
