David Lang’s Pulitzer-Prize-Winning the little match girl passion tells an everyday story in a hauntingly simple way. The human story of a starving girl freezing to death is framed within, and brilliantly juxtaposed with the divine St. Matthew Passion by Johann Sebastian Bach. If you enjoyed Emmanuel’s performance of the St. Matthew Passion last spring, you will love this companion piece with new choreography by the Jessie Jeanne and Dancers company. If Bach’s masterpiece is less familiar to you, this intimate performance will spark your curiosity and introduce you to the heartbreaking themes of this eternal story.
