Lincoln Center's White Light Festival: Stabat mater

In Pergolesi’s ravishingly spare Stabat mater—composed weeks before his death at age 26—Mary’s suffering at the Crucifixion finds form in heartrending song, resulting in a deeply  personal portrait of religious experience. Choreographer Jessica Lang adds “gracious flow and arresting gesture” (The New York Times) to this union of sacred music and dance, in which countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo and soprano Andriana Chuchman perform what Rousseau called “the most perfect and touching duet to come from the pen of any composer.”
