Your True Calling Libretto

Composing in the Shadow of Schumann, Mendelssohn, and Mahler. This theatrical work combines the songs of Clara Schumann, Fanny Mendelssohn and Alma Mahler with a libretto based on their own writings. It highlights the struggles of female composers in the 19th and early 20th century who were discouraged from composing and encouraged to follow their 'true calling' as wives and mothers.
