Oliver Prezant gives themed talks based on the Santa Fe Opera's upcoming season.

Today's talk is entitled Novel Ideas: Going Home , and it will focus on Jennifer Higdon's Cold Mountain.

Deserting the Confederate army and fleeing the hospital to reunite with the love of his life, wounded Civil War soldier W. P. Inman endures an American odyssey that has gripped millions of readers — and now takes the opera stage. In this highly anticipated world premiere, the Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Jennifer Higdon captures the fervor of Charles Frazier’s thrilling novel Cold Mountain with her distinctive technical brilliance and audience appeal.

Oliver Prezant is a popular lecturer for the Santa Fe Opera, the Music Director of the Santa Fe Community Orchestra, and the Artistic Advisor to the ArtWorks program, which provides arts education programs for public school students and teachers. His unique presentations have helped thousands of music lovers deepen their enjoyment and understanding of music.
