Lincoln Center's White Light Festival: Jessica Lang presents "Stabat Mater"
On November 1 & 2 Jessica Lang Dance will perform the Company Premiere of Jessica Lang's work, Stabat Mater, as a part of Lincoln Center's White Light Festival. In this work, Lang has taken Pergolesi's Stabat Mater, a sorrowful and heartrending psalm of the Virgin Mary's lamentations at the crucifixion, and created "one of the most extraordinary experiences an opera-goer is likely to see" (operawarhorses). Lang combined "gracious flow and arresting gesture" (New York Times), creating "an overall experience of potent emotional impact" (Operatoday). Performed by countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo and soprano Andriana Chuchman with the Orchestra of St. Luke's, conducted by Speranza Scappucci. Developed at the Glimmerglass Festival, Lang's Stabat Mater premiered in Cooperstown, New York, in 2013, and receives its first New York City performances at the 2017 White Light Festival, presented by Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.
Stabat Mater has been generously supported by the Strelizia Foundation.
