A Collaboration with Urbanity Dance

BACH The Contest between Phoebus and Pan, BWV201
WEILL The Seven Deadly Sins

The final concert, Bach Reinvented, features Bach’s own take on the eternal “pop music versus ‘learned’ music” debate, in his secular cantata, The Contest between Phoebus and Pan. Kurt Weill’s acrid commentary on greed and alienation, The Seven Deadly Sins, shows how the composer acknowledged his debt to Bach and then ran with it. Chorales in praise of money and a baroque parody aria rub up against foxtrots and cabaret numbers in this delicious ‘sung ballet’ score.

PLEASE NOTE: The Box office will be open with tickets for sale from 5:45 PM to 6:30 PM in the lobby of Emmanuel Church. The Box office will reopen at 7:00 PM in the Lindsey Chapel (next to the church).

Because the performance space is set up as a reverse theater-in-the-round, "no one will be able to see everything but everyone will have some transcendent moments." The higher ticket prices will be in the middle and front of the sanctuary, with the successive lower ticket price levels in concentric circles by descending order.
Tickets General $30, 2nd Tier $60; 1st Tier $95, Patron $150, Student $10
