Postcard from Morocco

Recorded on

Seven strangers wait for a train and describe the contents of their luggage—a hat box, a cornet case, a cake box—but refuse to let anyone see. The New England Conservatory Graduate Opera Department performs Postcard From Morocco, a charming and surreal meditation on how we long to hide, yet long to be seen.
