Event description

Description

Coming to Ithaca, NY on June 16, 2018, “Tenebrae: The Passion of Dietrich Bonhoeffer” is a theatrical performance recalling the life of the German pastor who spoke out against the tyranny overtaking Germany on the day Adolph Hitler came to power. He spent the rest of his life struggling to be true to his faith while fighting against this oppression, secretly aiding Jews to escape Germany, and even joining the plot to assassinate Hitler. Eventually arrested, Bonhoeffer spent two years in prison and just a few days before the end of WWII, he was tried for treason and executed by the collapsing Nazi regime.

In "Tenebrae: The Passion of Dietrich Bonhoeffer” we relive the final moments of Bonhoeffer's journey, reflecting on his life and work through his letters, manuscripts and poetry. This one hour music drama is presented in 12 scenes and composed for adult and children’s choirs, soloists, narrator and chamber orchestra.

Produced by Orpheus Theatrical Group, LLC in cooperation with Triphammer Arts, with music composed by Hugh McElyea and produced by David Atchison. Join us for this live performance beginning at 8pm at Sage Chapel at Cornell University. Admission is FREE but RSVP is required.

On campus parking is available.
