Synopsis

Trilogy of one-act operas set in New York's Central Park and performed at the New York City Opera, Lincoln Center. In "The Festival of Regrets," congregants from a synagogue meet at the Bethesda Fountain for tashlich, a ceremony in which one throws bread into the water, symbolically casting off the past year's sins and regrets. At the ceremony, Greta and Frank express their regrets at their separation and the end of their relationship. In "Strawberry Fields," an elderly woman with Alzheimer's disease wanders into the park and befriends a student, who is willing to let her live out her delusion that they are at an opera and that he is her long-dead husband. In "The Food of Love," a homeless woman with a baby, stands outside the Central Park Zoo, trying to persuade strangers to take her infant son and give him a future.
