Presentation by Dawn Sonntag — Opera: “For Life”

June 14 @ 7:30 pm

Dawn Sonntag's opera "For Life," with a libretto by Harvard-trained psychologist, dialogical therapist, and film director Kermit Cole, brings to attention the problem of iatrogenic illness caused by a for-profit mental health care system. This opera, which will be premiered online in late spring as part of the Cleveland Opera Theater's New Opera Works festival, captures the extreme, timeless, even absurd aspects of medication-induced infirmity. At one of the most significant moments of change in world history, at a time when peoples’ distresses are generally met with a misguided, often dangerous, response, this opera calls for a seismic shift in models of care and treatment for life’s inevitable challenges.
