    In Kaija Saariaho’s hypnotic opera, based on Ezra Pound’s translations of two Japanese Noh plays, a ghost and an angel emerge from a world of light and shadow. A trio of celebrated performers—countertenor Philippe Jaroussky, bass-baritone Davóne Tines, and dancer Nora Kimball-Mentzos—conjures these supernatural encounters in a U.S. premiere directed by Peter Sellars that shimmers with spectral power and ”overwhelms with beauty” (Bachtrack).

    “This introspective music theatre, this future of opera, overwhelms with beauty, stimulates the imagination, and entrances the mind. Don’t miss it.”

    Bachtrack

    “Sensual and evocative.”

    Financial Times

    “Disarms, seduces and hypnotizes…. Not since Written on Skin has modern opera thrilled with such intensity”

    Bachtrack

    From White Light Festival

    Blak Whyte Gray
    (U.S. premiere)

    A world in flux, a need for change: This is the driving force behind Blak Whyte Gray, an electrifying dance-theater work from Olivier Award–winning East London company Boy Blue. Rooted in pure hip-hop with a fierce political bite, brilliant stage imagery, and a driving electronic music score, Blak Whyte Gray pulses with physical virtuosity.

    “A cascade of pure dance invention.” – Guardian (U.K.) on Gelabert

    “Adventurous, intelligent pianist.” – Threepenny Review on Muzijevic

    A quietly thrilling meditation on music, light, and movement unfolds within the hushed, meditative sound world of Morton Feldman’s 1981 solo piano piece Triadic Memories. Vividly rendered by pianist Pedja Muzijevic, the shifting colors and elastic tempos of Feldman’s painterly music are transformed into movement with “corporeal magic” (Guardian, U.K.) by choreographer and dancer Cesc Gelabert, and merged with an intricate color and light interplay by designer Burke Brown.

    Composer Morton Feldman at the piano, ca. 1963 University at Buffalo Music Library .

    Baryshnikov Arts Center studio space

    BAC is the realization of a long-held vision by artistic director Mikhail Baryshnikov, who sought to build an arts center in New York City that would serve as a gathering place for artists from all disciplines. BAC’s opening in 2005 heralded the launch of this mission, establishing a thriving creative space for artists from around the world. Located in the Hudson Yards neighborhood of Manhattan, BAC comprises a total of 20,000 square feet, including the 238-seat Jerome Robbins Theater, which opened in 2010; the Howard Gilman Performance Space, a black box performance space seating 136 people; four column-free studios; and office space. BAC serves approximately 500 artists and more than 22,000 audience members annually through presentations and artist residencies.
