Composed from 1939-1941, this secular oratorio is inspired by events in Germany: the arrest of a young Jewish refugee for assassination of a German diplomat and ensuing Kristallnacht. Tippett’s composition uses five African American spirituals interspersed throughout the work to convey hope in the face of oppression. Performed in English with supertitles and projected imagery.
Price: $5/students; $15/general
