The Winterreise Project is the story of a "young musician's journey after discovering the faithlessness of his lover. Filled with pain and numbness, he blindly sets off on a harsh winter night. Throughout his unplanned and harried journey into the unmerciful folds of winter, he wanders between despair, life and hopeful love in a moving labyrinth of soul."

It's heavy stuff, but this retelling of Franz Schubert's 24-song cycle Winterreise (aka Winter's Journey) is beautiful and will be brought to life by baritone Jason Detwiler, who took on three roles (Melchoir in Amahl & the Night Visitors, Belcore in L'elisir d'amore and Albert in Werther) in 2017 alone. Whether you need a good cry or dose of aural elegance, get Winterreise-d.
