Thursday, October 3

"Such Sweet Thunder" is a 12-part Duke Ellington suite based on Shakespeare’s plays and sonnets. It has been described by NPR as “one of the most remarkable orchestral pieces in all of American music.”

This multidisciplinary performance features original dance choreography, live jazz music, Shakespearean verse and theater, and breathtaking lighting and video as the backdrop for a tempestuous love story.
