Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Music, David Lang’s Little Match Girl Passion has been hailed by Pitchfork as “the most profound and emotionally resonant work of [Lang’s] career.” The secular oratorio sets Hans Christian Andersen’s story in the format of Bach’s St. Matthew Passion, elevating the doomed fairy tale heroine to a Christ-like figure. New Yorker Lang’s Passion will be paired with brand new compositions by innovative New York composers.
