Join us as we officially kick off our 2020 Festival with this uncommon love story. In 1939 two young lovers, Robert, a Catholic opera singer and Rachel, a Jewish violin virtuoso, dream of one day performing together at legendary Carnegie Hall. When they are torn apart by the German invasion of Poland, Robert vows to find Rachel, no matter what the war may bring.
Featuring Guest Speaker Director Martha Coolidge
