“Miller's new season opens with a Composer Portrait of Liza Lim, whose work is captivating, thoughtful, and imbued with a deep connection to the natural world. She was previously featured on our series in 2014, and she returns now with a new piece she's created for the JACK Quartet. I am excited to share this vibrant program with New York audiences.”

— Melissa Smey, Miller Theatre Executive Director

A new, co-commissioned work—scheduled to be heard in concert halls on three continents this year—opens Miller’s season. Liza Lim is “one of Australia’s most important cultural exports” (Limelight Magazine), whose music encompasses ideas of beauty, ecological connection, and ritual transformation. The talented and dauntless JACK Quartet performs the U.S. premiere of String Creatures, alongside a piece for solo cello, prepared with a violin and a length of thread.
