These Valleys and Mountains: Berks Legends

World Premiere • Friday, June 17th, 2022
Miller Center for the Arts

Reading Area Community College, Reading, PA

Mountain Mary left a legacy of loving spirituality and profound healing.  Matthias Schaumbacher left the opposite: a legend of greed and violence. How have the seeds planted in the stories of these two people, who lived such different lives, grown in this place we call home?  


A new opera by Chris Heslop, with libretto by Vicki Haller Graff, and direction by Joel Richard Gori.
