The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra Presents
Monday, November 27th
Acclaimed opera and theater director Sam Helfrich joins PSO music director Manfred Honeck and a trio of classical vocalists – Rachele Gilmore (soprano), Werner Güra (tenor), and Alexander Elliott (bass) – with a piano accompaniment.
Following his widely successful staged interpretations of Handel’s Messiah and Bach’s St. John Passion, Helfrich will illuminate the six most famous days in all of Judeo-Christian history with a theatrical presentation of Haydn’s beloved Creation.
The music will be counterpointed by readings from City of Asylum writer-in-exile Tuhin Das (Bangladesh), ICORN poet Esterine Kire (Norway/India) … and other special guest authors! Each writer will present work approaching the topic of creation from secular points of view.
Did you know that there is a restaurant in City of Asylum @ Alphabet City? During these events, Alphabet City will be set up so that you can have dinner during the event (or simply order drinks).
When making your reservation,
please add that you wish to see the film under special notes.
