A CHILD OF OUR TIME
November 2, 2019, 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Sir Michael Tippett’s powerful oratorio A Child of Our Time was composed in 1941 in response to the horrors of Kristallnacht. Described by BBC Music Magazine as ‘one of the great seminal works that define the spirit of the 20th century’, Tippett’s work remains a compelling call for unity in a divided world. Drawing inspiration from African-American spirituals Nobody Knows the Trouble I’ve Seen, Steal Away, Deep River and others, this magnificent masterwork will be performed by 160 voices, full orchestra, and world-renowned soloists.
