A wild, tender, and savage ride, En Masse presents two visions of humanity at its extremes through circus settings of Schubert’s Winterreise and selections from Schwanengesang, as well as Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring. Glitches and grooves by Swedish composer Klara Lewis are interspersed with Schubert’s exquisite songs of loss and love as a sole tenor and acrobats veer between anarchic energy and exquisite loss. Then Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, with its ecstatic tribal energy, is played live by pianists while acrobats are pitted in a life-and-death struggle between group and victim in this first-ever circus setting of Rite of Spring. The Circa ensemble puts bodies on the line in electrifying explosions of physicality and power. With live music by tenor Robert Murray, and pianists Tamara-Anna Cislowska and Michael Kieran Harvey.
