Projection designed by Britty Lea


In 1840, composer Robert Schumann completed an eight-song cycle entitled Frauenliebe und Leben (A woman's life and love) on a set of poems by poet and botanist Adalbert Chamisso (1781-1838)

In 2019 Dr. Gabrielle Dietrich reimagined the story within the songs and brought the vision to life. 


Presented live at Penn State Behrend's Gender Conference in Erie, PA on April 18th, 2019
