Members of the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra
Amanda  Miller, choreography
Gottfried  von der Goltz, musical direction

U.S. Premiere. Choreographer Amanda Miller elegantly blends classical ballet into modern dance, creating striking variations to Bach's Art of the Fugue. A favorite for dance enthusiasts and Baroque music lovers alike, the Ballett Freiburg Pretty Ugly Dance Company performs with a quintet from the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra. "It's intense...sophisticated, but tantalizingly human," praised The Guardian. One of the many joys of Johann Sebastian Bach's music is the astonishing variety of interpretations it continues to inspire--and this season's festival includes some of the finest. Moving back in time, enjoy both the Freiburg and Amsterdam Baroque Orchestras in concerts that capture the sound of original Baroque instruments.

Macbeth - Lincoln Center Summer Festival

“Sciarrino has managed to produce another theatrical success that secures his place as one of the significant composers of contemporary opera."--Sueddeutsche Zeitung. "Widely considered one of Europe's most original contemporary composers" (The New York Times), Salvatore Sciarrino returns to Lincoln Center Festival after his triumph of Luce mie traditrici in 2001 with the chilling, contemporary spectacle of Shakespeare's tragedy Macbeth. Exploring the play's themes of temptation and the seduction of power, Sciarrino plunges audiences into his "supremely poetic" sound world (Village Voice). For this production, Sciarrino collaborates with noted German director Achim Freyer and Oper Frankfurt to create an illusory experience that promises to captivate and astonish. Walls become floors and the ceiling, a wall, creating ever-changing perspectives on the ghostly world of this classic story. A former student of Bertolt Brecht, Freyer's bold visionary work hasn't been performed in New York City in over a decade. In the role of Lady Macbeth, German mezzo-soprano Annette Stricker returns to the Festival after her outstanding portrayal of the Duchess in Luci mei traditrici. The Frankfurt-based Ensemble Modern also returns under to baton of conductor Johannes Debus of the Oper Frankfurt. Co-production of Oper Frankfurt, Schwetzingen Festival, and Musica per Roma. Major support provided by The Alice Tully Foundation. Performed in Italian with English supertitles.


Shaman Ritual - Lincoln Center Summer Festival

"It's obvious why Kim is a national treasure when you see her perform. She invokes spirits with remarkable skill."--Los Angeles Times. Korean shaman Kim Keum-hwa and her 18 master artists and assistants bless New York City with their spectacular ritual performance. Transforming an elaborate, vibrang stage into a ceremonial space, Kim Keum-hwa summons and receives spirits via a series of ritualistic dances, songs, and acts. Dressed in colorful, sacred costumes, they perform these rituals--which include offerings of friut and food as well as unnerving acts of physical courage--to chanting and traditional drums and woodwind instruments played on-stage. Established long before Taoism, Buddhism, or Christianity, these ceremonies are central to Korean culture, embodying myriad aspects of the country's music and dance traditions. Born in 1931 in North Korea, Kim Keum-hwa is regarded as a "national living treasure" and one of the most masterful shamans in her country. Rarely seen outside Korea, this celebration promises to be one of the most extraordinary cultural experiences of the season.
