July 20 - August 22, 2013
Love and loss echo through two one-acts in a unique juxtaposition of 18th and 21st-century musical masterpieces. The company will premiere a new version of the work that took the 2008 Pulitzer Prize in music, Lang’s the little match girl passion, with an 18th-century masterpiece, Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater.
In this pairing, the company presents the pain and catharsis of two deaths – that of an anonymous, impoverished little girl and that of a controversial prophet, as seen through the eyes of his grieving mother.
