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.”

The Program

“Potent emotional impact.”
– Opera Today
“Jessica Lang has a knack for conceiving a complete universe in each dance—distinctive in its look and mood, sound and atmosphere.”
– Los Angeles Times
