Noted film composer Jeffrey Leiser will present a live concert featuring selections from his new opera, Far Travelers currently in development. Mr. Leiser is known for his many film scores and symphony no. 1The SummitFar Travelers is a Viking opera, set in the year 1004 A.D. Based (in premise) on the Vinlandic sagas, the opera follows the travels of a group of merchants and Vikings as they attempt to settle Newfoundland, but the real action takes place between two prominent women of the time: Gudrid Thorbjarnardóttir, who gave birth to the first European child in North America, and Freydís Eiríksdóttir, the fiery half-sister of famed explorer Leif Erikson. Spanning Vinland (Newfoundland), Greenland, and Iceland, Far Travelers is an epic tale in the spirit of Der Ring des Nibelungen.
