As foretold in a prophecy, Savitri hears Death calling to claim her beloved husband Satyavan. Savitri welcomes Death with kindness and wisdom. Enchanted by her compassion and entrapped by her guile, Death acknowledges defeat, and restores Satyavan to life. Based on a passage from India's sacred Mahabharata, Savitri brings us right to the gates of our fate with a glistening chamber score and haunting English libretto.
