Andree’s arctic expedition of 1897 was an effort to reach the North Pole in a balloon. All three member of the Swedish expedition – Salomon Andrée, Knut Frænkel, and Nils Strindberg – perished. In 1982 American composer Dominick Argento composed this
45-minute tour de force song cycle depicting the harrowing journey. This exciting and challenging collaboration is being brought to life in a staged version for one night only at ARCO, Cincinnati’s newest performing arts and event venue.
