Mostly Mozart: Divine Connection

David Geffen Hall at Lincoln Center

Enter into the glorious company of Mozart and composer Arvo Pärt, whose timeless music, including Te Deum, Cantus in Memory of Benjamin Britten, and Mozart-Adagio, is intertwined with Mozart’s eternal Requiem to evoke ritual, healing, and light. Director Elkhanah Pulitzer, “fearless in [her] dramatic imagination” (San Francisco Chronicle), stages a sublime experience moving from the almost imperceptible sound of inward grief to an all-encompassing communal embrace of transcendence, illumination, and possibility. Louis Langrée conducts the Festival Orchestra and stellar vocal soloists for this premiere production choreographed by Chanel DaSilva.
