Lilac 94 is pleased to be part of a rare production of KLANG: The 24 Hours of the Day by one of the 20th century’s most important composers, Karlheinz Stockhausen. Intended

to include 24 pieces but left incomplete at the time of Stockhausen’s death (2007), this 21-part work gives space

to meditate on time, spirituality, and reality, allowing the audience to reflect on the meaning of mortality. Charting the journey of the soul from the body into the afterlife, it is the final, epic statement of the composer and a fitting capstone to Stockhausen’s massive career. The music ranges from intimate chamber pieces to virtuosic displays and electronic extravaganzas. This production features performances by Cologne’s MusikFabrik, light paintings by Thomas Dunn, and sound projection by Dolph Kamper. Lilac 94 performs KLANG's second part, "Freude" (Joy), which was written for two harps.

The Fantasticks, by Tom Jones & Harvey Schmidt, is the world's longest running musical - running for over 50 years in Manhattan and entrancing generations of audiences the world over.
The Fantasticks is a funny and romantic musical about a boy, a girl, two fathers and a wall. The narrator, El Gallo asks the audience to use their imagination and follow him into a world of moonlight and magic. The boy and the girl fall in love, grow apart, and finally find their way back to each other.
The famous score, which includes the classics Try To Remember, They Were You and Soon It's Gonna Rain, is as timeless as the story itself. Ruth & Bucky Stein Theatre.

Chrysler Hall, Incidental music by Sibelius

 

No reading of The Tempest can do it justice. Shakespeare's tale of Prospero's island is inherently theatrical, unfolding in a series of spectacles, and was created by Shakespeare as a multi-sensory theater experience of sight and sound. The richness ofThe Tempest as theater is matched by the extraordinary thematic complexity of its text, which plays on the polarities of reality and illusion, nature and civilization, revenge and forgiveness. This fully staged new theatrical production features incidental music by Sibelius that is considered by many to be one of his greatest achievements.
