Commonwealth Chorale presents Arnesen’s- The Wound in the Water
Sun, March 11 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm$25 - $35
Commonwealth Chorale presents acclaimed Norwegian Composer Kim Andre Arnesen’s The Wound in the Water which premiered in 2016 and is already being hailed as a masterpiece. At Church of the Holy Name, West Roxbury, this will be one of the first presentations of this lyrical tour de force to an American Audience.
The text, by UK -based poet and librettist Euan Tait, evokes a world in pain in which we are divided by greed from one another and exiled from our own capacity for love. With stirring orchestration for strings and piano and luscious vocals for soprano soloist, Susan Consoli, and the chorus Arnesen’s ultimately uplifting work concludes with hope for healing and a shared song.
