“Love Songs” by Ana Sokolovic
Kristin Hoff, Mezzo-Soprano and Co-Artistic Director
Fides Krucker, Co-Artistic Director
“Love has always been and always will be the inexhaustible inspiration of human creativity. Love follows us everywhere; love is the cause and the result. Love evokes the strongest human emotions: love has led people to wars, but it has also inspired the most beautiful poems. All the languages sing about love the same way. Every happiness, worry, sadness and tenderness is similar to another.”
– Ana Sokolovic
