A multi-media concert in many senses of that term. The first half offers Gotham, a 2004 joint production by filmmaker Bill Morrison and composer Michael Gordon. Using archival footage of New York City, Gotham combines film, projectors, lighting and orchestra to create a haunting impression of that city. Stravinsky’s opulent Persephone, which the composer described as a “melodrama,” sets a text by André Gide that tells of the descent of the goddess Persephone into the underworld and her return. For this presentation we will be joined by the Lux Boreal Dance Company, narrator, tenor soloist, and children’s choir.
