Texts by T.S. Eliot, Maurice Blanchot, Franz Kafka, and Samuel Beckett
Visionary German composer and director Heiner Goebbels returns to Lincoln Center with this concert staged in three tableaus, bringing to life T.S. Eliot’s The Lovesong of J. Alfred Prufrock, Maurice Blanchot’s The Madness of the Day, Franz Kafka’s “Excursion into the Mountains,” and Samuel Beckett’s Worstward Ho. Goebbels’s melancholy music is tailor-made for the hauntingly beautiful voices of the Hilliard Ensemble, who give stripped-down, deeply compassionate musical renderings of the authors’ protagonists.
These performances will be followed by White Light Lounges.
Post-performance discussion with Heiner Goebbels and John Schaefer on November 13
