Amuse presents Antigone
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Amuse Singers is thrilled to present the NY premiere of James Kallembach’s haunting oratorio Antigone as part of our 2019-2020 Season. This visionary work for women’s ensemble and cello quartet interpolates scenes from the Sophocles play with the writings of Sophie Scholl and the WWII White Rose resistance movement. Antigone’s exploration of unrest and the individual at odds with the state is as timely as ever, and it is a striking example of a necessary and ongoing commitment by women’s ensembles to contribute to the currently underrepresented body of women’s choral literature. The program also includes Joshua Shank's arrangement of Saro and Mary Montgomery Koppel's Mother of Exiles. All works were originally commissioned by the vanguard and visionary Boston-based women's ensemble, Lorelei. The concerts will take place on Sunday February 9 at 4 pm at St John’s Episcopal Church at 139 St. Johns Place in Brooklyn, and on Tuesday February 11 at 7:30 pm at St. Ignatius of Antioch at 552 West End Avenue in Manhattan. Advance tickets are $18 and can be purchased at www.amusesingers.org. Tickets at the door are $25/$20 for students and seniors.
Venue: St Ignatius of Antioch
