Rose Theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center
Broadway at 60th Street, New York, NY 10023
Considered one of the greatest song cycles ever composed, Schubert's haunting "Winterreise" is imbued with the poignancy of an artist facing his impending death. In "The Dark Mirror", German composer Hans Zender builds on Schubert's simple piano and voice arrangement, adding orchestral drama, which is brought to life by director Netia Jones' arresting monochrome visuals. At the center of the "enthralling" theatrical production ("The Telegraph") is tenor Ian Bostridge, one of the world's premier interpreters of "Winterreise". Don't miss this "powerful musical journey" ("The Guardian") when it comes to the Rose Theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center.
