MusicNOW: Amy Beth Kirsten: Savior


7:00 PM Monday, April 2, 2018

Chicago native Amy Beth Kirsten composes with fierce expressionism and often requires musicians to play, vocalize, act and move simultaneously. Receiving its world premiere on the MusicNOW series, Savior combines music, movement and theater into a unified whole to reflect upon the perceptual richness and complexity of Joan of Arc’s mystical and divinely inspired life and death.

“Dark, wild and engrossing…wondrously eclectic...” The New York Times

Savior was commissioned by the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation for MusicNOW.
