After a long dark winter, one longs for the scent of earth and new growth...

Historic Theatre

After a long dark winter, one longs for the scent of earth and new growth…

Please join us for two new world premieres:

Night Sonnets | An excavation of luminous fragments scored for voice, reader, and
string quartet. Songs of origin, exile, wonder, and farewell. Many of the texts were
newly written for this composition; several are drawn from Browne’s collection, The
Hatch.

Petal | A dramatic new composition for string quartet and soprano that that tracks the
transcendent journey of the psyche as it reconstitutes itself from a single cell into the
terrestrial body of love and grief. The history of the universe, re-discovered in every
moment, summoning light.
