Work introduction

Theatre magician Robert Wilson is paying homage to Arvo Pärt with a musical and theatre production that will be premiered in May 2015 in Tallinn. The production consists of a chamber orchestra, a choir, five solo singers, actors and a group of local drama students. For this project, Arvo Pärt has selected three major compositions from his oeuvre: the two choral works Adam’s Lament and Miserere, and the double violin concerto Tabula rasa. This is joined by Sequentia, a new work composed by Pärt especially for this production. The unique collaboration between these two great artists is an event of international importance.

Simultaneously, a television documentary is being filmed.

Press reviews

Wilson’s vision, uniquely married to Pärt’s luminous musical essence, is a primeval, sculptural, and slow-motion dream – an ominous dream that cannot be forgotten. (Alexandra Ivanoff, Today’s Zaman, 17.05.2015)
