Theatre magician Robert Wilson is paying homage to Arvo Pärt with a musical and theatre production that will be premièred on 12 May in Tallinn: Adam’s Passion.
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. Performances take place on 12, 13, 14 and 16 May.
Accentus music has prepared a trailer for the production:
