Following a discussion with composer Jake Heggie and Camille Claudel curator Emerson Bowyer, Grammy Award–winning mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato performs Heggie’s 35-minute song cycle Camille Claudel: Into the Fire with the Brentano Quartet.

Into the Fire dives deep into the romantic, rebellious world of artist Camille Claudel, transforming her powerfully emotive sculptures and tragic life into music.
