Voices of Ascension: Amadeus (Ensemble)

Composed during the last days of his life, Mozart’s Requiem moves from tragic resignation in its opening to the fierce vigor of the “Dies Irae” and finally the intense pleading of the “Lacrimosa,” the movement left unfinished at his death.

Antonio Salieri, depicted in the movie Amadeus as Mozart’s nemesis, actually composed some extremely beautiful music, none more so than De Profundis. A simple, pure soprano chant gradually builds to a grandiose conclusion with full orchestra and chorus.

Virtually unknown, Joseph Martin Kraus’s Requiem provides a striking contrast to Mozart’s—lighter but equally haunting. The German Kraus later worked in Sweden, becoming known as the Swedish Mozart.

Part of the 2018 Next Wave Festival

A psychedelic supernova explodes across the cosmos; electricorange lava erupts like a fireworks display; a constellation of jellyfish ripples diaphanously in an azure ocean; and across the globe— from Austin, Texas, to the Australian Outback—human life buzzes and swarms. In his breathtaking, decades-in-the-making dream project, cinematic philosopher Terrence Malick (Tree of LifeDays of Heaven) presents an awe-inspiring vision of Earth: an elemental wonderland where the process of creation that began with the Big Bang never really ended. Alongside these ecstatic images of destruction and renewal, the Wordless Music Orchestra and Chorus perform the exultant sounds of Bach, Beethoven, Mahler, and others.

Julia Wolfe: Anthracite Fields

"The music compels without overstatement,” wrote the Los Angeles Times of Julia Wolfe’s Pulitzer Prize–winning Anthracite Fields. “This is a major, profound work.” Inspired by miners living in the Pennsylvania coal region, Wolfe uses oral histories, interviews with miners and their families, speeches, children’s rhymes, and other sources to create a powerful cantata that speaks of the American worker’s experience. With music that is at times elegiac, hard-driving, and tender, Wolfe creates a soundscape that is deeply moving.

Voices of Ascension: Works of Lassus and Byrd (Ensemble)

The extraordinary human artistic flowering known as the Renaissance gave us what is often referred to as “The Golden Age of Choral Music,” when all the greatest composers of the world were writing for chorus. At the very end of this period two figures towered over them all: Lassus and Byrd. Several iconic works will be performed, including Lassus’s Justorum animae and Surrexit Pastor Bonus, and Ave Verum Corpus and Four-Part Mass by Byrd.

THE MILE-LONG OPERA, A BIOGRAPHY OF 7 O’CLOCK

For six consecutive nights, October 3 - 8, 2018, 1,000 singers from across New York will come together on the High Line for the first-ever performances of The Mile-Long Opera: a biography of 7 o'clock. Co-produced by Diller Scofidio + Renfo and the High Line, this a sweeping free choral work will immerse audiences in the personal stories of hundreds of New Yorkers about life in our rapidly changing city. 

At the heart of this new work is an extensive community engagement initiative with non-profit cultural organizations across all five boroughs: Abrons Arts Center and the Greater Harlem Chamber of Commerce in Manhattan, ARTs East NY in Brooklyn, Jacob A. Riis Neighborhood Settlement in Queens, The POINTCDC in the Bronx, and Snug Harbor in Staten Island. Each partner serves as a hub for engaging audiences off the High Line—by recruiting choirs, holding open rehearsals and workshops, and hosting events.

The Mile-Long Opera is conceived by composer David Lang and architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro. Poets Anne Carson and Claudia Rankine wrote the text, inspired by real-life stories, gathered through first-hand interviews with residents throughout the city, asking what 7:00 pm means to them.

With English supertitles

Conductor Louis Langrée, the Festival Orchestra, bass-baritone Davóne Tines, and a huge cast of singers, musicians, and dancers celebrate Leonard Bernstein with a fully staged production of his bold 1971 MASS. Born of the Vietnam War era, MASS is an endlessly inventive dramatic happening and case study in eclecticism, with rock, gospel, and Broadway songwriter Stephen Schwartz’s “Simple Song” woven together with tone rows, marches, and chorales. At its heart, MASS portrays a deeply personal crisis of faith, embodied by the central figure of the Celebrant (Tines). In this New York production premiere directed by SF Opera Lab curator Elkhanah Pulitzer, Bernstein’s spirited artifact of the Age of Aquarius enters a new millennium.
