Riders to the Sea
Presented by the Opera Theater of Yale College and the Yale Undergraduate Chamber Orchestra
by Ralph Vaughan Williams
As our Winter Show, the Opera Theater of Yale College, in collaboration with the Yale Undergraduate Chamber Orchestra, is proud to present Ralph Vaughan Williams’s one-act opera Riders to the Sea, based on the play of the same name by J.M. Synge. The opera deals with themes of existentiality, fatalism, and the conflicts between tradition and modernity, encapsulated in a moving story of a mother and her daughters who have lost their father and seven brothers to the cruelty of the sea.
