O, Brother where are thou? is related to Cold Mountain in that it is influenced by Homer’s The Odyssey. The Coen brothers crime comedy stars George Clooney, John Turturro, and Tim Blake Nelson, with John Goodman, Holly Hunter, and Charles Durning in supporting roles. The Appalachian music soundtrack produced by T Bone Burnett won a Grammy Award for album of the year.
We invite you to then attend the West Coast premiere of the opera Cold Mountain at the Granada Theatre.
Thank you to the Santa Barbara Public Library for their partnership in screening and hosting book clubs for Charles Frazier’s Cold Mountain and collaboration for the London Symphony Orchestra Voyager Family Concert.
