Death Speaks

Provided by:

Event runs from 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM


Songs of the unknown and unknowable in life and death. In some of Schubert’s most famous songs we encounter death not as a concept, but as a character, and nearly 200 years later, Schubert’s portrayals of death personified are the starting point for David Lang’s ‘death speaks’, a song cycle sung from the perspective of death, composed from fragments of 32 Schubert Lieder. Luminescence Children’s Choir performs Lang’s haunting cycle for voice, electric, guitar, piano, violin and percussion. Death Speaks is music that muses on the end; the one certainty and ultimate unknown. Entry Cost Adult $43.29 Concession $41.18 Child $22.19 - Children under 12 Student $32.74 - UNDER 30s ticket
