Tickets & Info Here! (Multiple Performances)

the whisper opera, with words and music by Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lang and direction and design by Jim Findlay, is performed by ICE with the musicians, singer, and audience enclosed in an intimate onstage set, and is performed almost entirely in whispers. Lang explores the question: “what if a piece were so quiet and so personal to the performers that you needed to be right next them or you would hear almost nothing. The only way this piece can be received is if you are there, in person, listening very closely.”  Following the success of the premiere at Mostly Mozart in 2013, ICE has brought this work to audiences around the US and Europe.  Don't miss its dramatic return to New York!
