The Lion’s Bride
Martha (Lindsey) is a rising young singer, known particularly for her powerful lieder recitals. Her secret for such performances lies in the haunting images (Owens & Oropesa) she creates and throws herself into for each song she sings. The nearest she has to a friend is one of her former teachers, Loban (Hvorostovsky), a stern and frigid man for whom she nurtures a deep platonic admiration. As her visions grow stronger and stronger, she is uncapable of controlling herself, suffering from a crisis during an important recital.
