A symphonic cycle of monumental proportions, James Dillon’s Nine Rivers is one of the most talked-about new works of the past few years. Written over several decades—and scored for a formidable assemblage of musicians and multimedia artists—the cycle covers a vast sonic terrain, from hushed a cappella singing to high-octane drumming.
Miller opens the 2011-12 season with an ambitious, three-night staging of this important work, bringing together members of the original creative team with some of the best new music performers on both coasts.
All-Access Pass: $100
Includes prime seating for all three performances, opening night reception with the artists, and closing night talk-back with the composer and performers.
