 Moby Dick Illustration

Join us for an afternoon of exploration into the psychological depths of Herman Melville’s great novel, Moby Dick. Jungian Analyst Bill Riess will be joined by composer Jake Heggie and SF Opera Director of Musical Administration Kip Cranna to present highlights of the upcoming

production and discuss the ways in which the artists transformed Melville’s massive work for the operatic stage. We will touch upon Edward Edinger’s archetypal study of the novel, Moby Dick: An American Nekyia, as well as see and hear excerpts from the production. This is a unique opportunity to become more familiar with one of the greatest works of American fiction from the Jungian perspective.

A reception including wine & light snacks will follow the discussion. We hope you will be there.
