Bell A New Opera by Composer Richard Einhorn and Librettist Kathryn Walat
Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone, deeply influenced Deaf education in America. Due to his ardent advocacy for "oralism", his legacy in the Deaf community comes with mixed feelings. "Bell" will tell the lesser-known story of Alexander and his Deaf mother, with music by deaf composer Richard Einhorn. American Sign Language Interpretation will be provided at this fully-accessible performance.
