FringeArts presents Songs Of Wars I Have Seen as part of its Center-supported project Heiner Goebbels: Imaginary Stages. A work of both music and theater, Songs of Wars I Have Seen joins instrumentalists from baroque ensemble Tempesta di Mare and members of the Philadelphia Orchestra on both period and contemporary instruments, and incorporates text by Gertrude Stein, to create what FringeArts describes as “a bittersweet lament on war’s insidious effects.”
