Show Full Description
In Pergolesi’s ravishingly spare Stabat mater—composed weeks before his death at age 26—he personalizes the religious experience through the heartrending song of Mary’s suffering at the scene of the Crucifixion. Choreographer Jessica Lang adds “gracious flow and arresting gesture” (New York Times) to this union of sacred music and dance, in which countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo and soprano Andriana Chuchman perform what Rousseau called “the most perfect and touching duet to come from the pen of any composer.”
