Libretto adapted from Aeschylus
The renowned choreographer Luca Veggetti directs this monumental work incorporating theater, dance, music, and projections. This will be the U.S. premiere of the final version of Oresteia, Iannis Xenakis’s only opera. Both an architect and composer, Xenakis reimagines Aeschylus’s epic tragedy through the lens of Japanese Noh theater. The immense cast comprises bass Wilbur Pauley, a chorus of 36 singers, six dancers, a children’s chorus, and orchestra.
Read this concert's program notes by Paul Griffiths.
Co-produced with Works & Process at the Guggenheim
