Witness the U.S. Premiere of The Legend of Bijan and Manijeh by Iranian composer Farhad Poupel, for piano, choir, and orchestra, with concert pianist Jeffrey Biegel. This evocative work is based on an ancient Persian love story taken from the Shahnameh (The Book of Kings), an epic poem by Persian poet Ferdowsi written between 977 and 1010 CE. Other love stories, mythical and historical, are brought to life through music of the great composers.
