This is a very unconventional look at Winterreise, one of the darkest song cycles ever written. Maybe this is even the "antidote." Through 24 meditations the author and the theoretical ghost of Schubert wander through winter trading insights into romantic rejection, loss, and the inability to accept love for what it is. This is a dark, sexy, musical fairy tale that reveals earthly trauma from the perspective of spirit. Why do we incarnate just to experience excruciating pain? This book can't offer an answer, but it can offer one possible viewpoint.
These meditations helped with the creation of Paper Puppet Opera's shadow puppet show of Winterreise and includes all of the poems in the original German with new translations by the author.
