Julia Wolfe's Immersive World Premiere

Celebrating their historic tenure as Big Apple's longest serving orchestra, the New York Philharmonic continues their 'New York Stories: Threads Of Our City' series, a poignant musical examination of its roots as a cultural melting pot and immigrant safe haven. As part of the dynamic season the ensemble presents the breathtaking world premiere of Pulitzer Prize-winning American composer Julia Wolfe's 'Fire In My Mouth', an immersive, multi-media performance featuring female choir The Crossing.

Wolfe focuses on the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, which ravaged the city's garment industry and killed 146 mostly female immigrant workers. Drawn from oral histories, speeches, interviews and historical accounts, the piece will conjure the roar of hundreds of sewing machines with groundbreaking music, lighting designs, and video projections, fusing it with the language of protest to highlight the plight of workers at the turn of the century, as well as today.

Program:

Stucky - Elegy from August 4, 1964
Copland - Clarinet Concerto
Julia Wolfe - Fire In My Mouth

Cranston's wrenching performance stands on its own. In context, it's a terrifying reminder of how an all-too-human, anger-filled public figure, with access to a worldwide stage, can be mistaken for a god.

Such a joyful hoot. With its kinetic dancing, broad mugging and belty anthems, it makes you believe in musical comedy again.
