JDT Lab: Far Travelers, live concert featuring selections from the opera by Jeffery Leiser by Jeffrey Leiser 

Noted film composer Jeffrey Leiser will present a live concert featuring selections from his new opera, Far Travelers currently in development. Mr. Leiser is known for his many film scores and symphony no. 1, The Summit. Far Travelers is a Viking opera, set in the year 1004 A.D. Based (in premise) on the Vinlandic sagas, the opera follows the travels of a group of merchants and Vikings as they attempt to settle Newfoundland, but the real action takes place between two prominent women of the time: Gudrid Thorbjarnardóttir, who gave birth to the first European child in North America, and Freydís Eiríksdóttir, the fiery half-sister of famed explorer Leif Erikson. Spanning Vinland (Newfoundland), Greenland, and Iceland, Far Travelers is an epic tale in the spirit of Der Ring des Nibelungen.
